My Approach to Helping
Life is complicated. Often the difficulties and stress we face create conflict and struggles that need to be shared with others. Through counseling, I believe that clients can find relief from the stress and pain of broken relationships, addiction, past traumas, and unidentified emotional and spiritual wounds. I enjoy working with women recovering from emotionally abusive relationships, adoptees, adoptive parents, adolescents, and young adults, and people in transition. I work collaboratively with clients to help them find peace and rest in the midst of daily life.
I use Narrative Therapy and Expressive Arts to help children and adolescents work through past issues and present problems. With adults, I primarily use ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to help clients realize their passions and find emotional freedom.
My desire is to walk alongside clients as they navigate the complexities of difficult relationships and trying experiences. My hope is that each client becomes more confident in his or her abilities to face the struggles of life with renewed dignity and a stronger sense of well-being.
