My Approach to Helping
The pressures of the modern world seem never-ending, particularly when you are dealing with an untreated or difficult-to-treat mental health or substance use disorder. Whether it is postpartum depression/anxiety/psychosis, general depression/anxiety, self-harm, psychosis, or difficulty coping with the struggles of chemical dependency, I am prepared to assist you in offering helpful coping strategies, understanding the psychology behind your experiences/symptoms, processing feelings and thoughts, and gaining better traction in your life. I enjoy working with families, parents, and even adolescents struggling with mental health issues.
My specialty is in mental health disorders and substance use (dual diagnosis). I have worked with individuals impacted by cycles of trauma, violence, and substances in various settings, including psychiatric hospitals, county jails, intensive outpatient programs, and traditional outpatient clinics. My mission: to help people THRIVE despite these circumstances.
I understand that both making sense of the issue(s) at hand and reaching out can be extremely stressful. What I provide is a safe and warm space where you can explore your needs, current feelings, history, and goals. You have the power to stop fighting what is out of your control and harness your power to control what is just within your grasp.
