My Approach to Helping
I work with individuals who want to create positive change in their lives but are ambivalent about how to go about making healthy changes. These individuals often need support to understand and manage acute anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders. I collaborate with clients to increase their self-esteem, coping skills to manage stress, learn to develop healthy boundaries, and skills to manage their emotions. My client\'s depend on me to be present, supportive and deliver evidenced based therapy in an emotionally safe environment.
I specialize in working with those who experience addiction, dual diagnosis and grief. I assist individuals coping with life transitions. I also focus my practice with working with individuals in our helping professionsfamily caregivers with compassion fatigue. I am a trauma informed counselor as well as an LGBTQ+ ally. My practice is a safe zone.
