My Approach to Helping

My approach to helping is that you are the expert on you. I am here to assist in guiding you through what is currently a barrier in your life. I believe in using wellness skills to teach someone to be their own therapist and be able to successfully and confidently process through their barriers.

For children and families, I believe that therapy should be fun and something that is looked forward to, rather than something that is dreaded. Children communicate through play, and at times do not have the words for complex feelings and emotions to utilize. This comes out in play, and incorporating the family can assist everyone in speaking the same language.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have had the pleasure to be trained in the Trauma Resiliency model or TRM (levels 1 and 2) addressing the body's response to trauma. Everyone defines trauma differently and trauma effects different people in different ways. The TRM model works with reminding the body and mind that there are pleasant and neutral body sensations and rebuild the confidence to access them again. Through a list of wellness skills, TRM assists client in processing their trauma on a physical and mental level, rather than repeating their trauma story multiple times.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is what the client needs. I will provide guidance, insight, other views, and assist the client with where they are at. A common misconception is that a therapist will provide their opinion or advice, when in reality that is what your friend and colleague can do. A therapist is there to show the other side, guide with the choice you as a client want to make, rather than trying to talk you out of it.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

What I usually like to know is, what the client would like from me, what is the goal of being in treatment, and what was the moment that brought you into therapy. These answers can assist in the direction of treatment, as well as how I can best serve you as a client.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

This depends on the symptoms, behaviors, diagnosis, and client's timeline. Some client's come in for a few sessions, develop some skills and can continue on their lives. Some client's needs months or a year of treatment. It depends on where the client is at, and this can be discussed and developed as treatment progresses
