My Approach to Helping
I've been in this field for over 10 years, and as a devoted LPC and LCADC, I work hard to inspire, teach, and reinforce resilience in those around me. I realize everyone is different and I like being creative when working with my clients. Therefore I use techniques and interventions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Art Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, yoga, and any other school of thought I come across that can help people. I am continuously seeking new skills and innovative ways to work with my clients. While I have experience working with quite a variety of disorders, my niche is with anxiety and trauma clients.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
"The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently." -Pema Chodron
We must look at ourselves honestly because it helps us to experience the liberation of true acceptance and peace with ourselves. We must look at ourselves gently because not every truth is pleasant, but it is still our truth. Counseling helps us look at ourselves with compassion and empathy as we grow in knowledge and understanding. Practicing this form of self love helps us treat others with the same regard. Counseling nurtures relationships, makes room for the creation of new friendships, and helps us grow even as we respond to the most difficult and challenging of circumstances. It helps us to be better people.
Love yourself enough to seek help. If you don't think that you're worth loving, that in itself is why you should seek help.
