My Approach to Helping
My goal in counseling is to help clients embrace their authentic selves, foster meaningful relationships, and improve their quality of life. As a Licensed Resident in Counseling, I specialize in helping young and mature adults navigate challenges related to eating disorders, substance use disorders, personality, and mood disorders. I take pride in working with the LGBTQIA+ community, I understand the need to create a space for those navigating the very complex process of connecting to our own identities.
I use a collaborative treatment approach that includes CBT, DBT, EFFT, and Mindfulness-based techniques. In treating eating disorders, I utilize Health at Every Size (HAES®), All Foods Fit, and the Intuitive Eating framework.
Seeking support is a brave first step, and I am here to support you on your journey. I practice under the supervision of Jane Engelken, LPC, LSATP.
