My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed, exhausted, or even hopeless? Do you wonder if things will ever get better? Whether you are experiencing emotional struggles that you just can’t seem to get through, having problems in your relationships, struggling with past trauma, addiction or substance use, experiencing stressful life changes, or stuck repeating the same old unhealthy or destructive patterns and behaviors you just can’t seem to break free of, therapy can help. Seeking help for the first time can be a scary and overwhelming experience. It takes courage to be willing to reach out and open up to someone new.
As a licensed counselor and a licensed addiction counselor, I can accompany and assist you on your journey towards healing. I work to empower my clients using a strength-based approach where I assist you in identifying, developing, and drawing from your unique strengths and skills. I use a trauma-informed approach and I am also trained in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
I believe the foundation of successful therapy is having a non-judgmental place where it is safe for you to explore your feelings, examine behaviors and challenge thoughts or negative beliefs that may no longer be serving you and holding you back from inner healing and the meaningful life you desire. I would be honored to accompany you on your journey.
Because I believe that a strong, collaborative therapeutic relationship is vital to successful therapy, I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to new clients to see if we will be a good fit for each other. In addition, I offer in-person sessions as well as online telehealth sessions if safety is a concern for you during these uncertain times. I can also accommodate busy schedules and offer some evening appointments.
