My Approach to Helping
My role as a therapist is to provide clients with a supportive, safe, and non-judgmental environment where clients feel comfortable enough to share their emotions, thoughts, and experiences. I understand that each client is unique, therefore, I use a variety of therapeutic approaches that can produce successful outcomes. I use therapeutic approaches such as but not limited to Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Structural Family Therapy (SFT), and Motivational Interviewing. Through collaborative efforts, one of my goals as a therapist is to provide clients with coping skills that will ultimately lead to a fulfilling lifestyle. The therapeutic process is a journey and I look forward to working with you.
More Info About My Practice
I completed my Master's Degree in Marriage, Couples, and Family Therapy at Walden University and immediately decided to further my education. I am currently completing my Ph.D. in Psychology. My experience includes couples, families, children/adolescents, and group therapy. I also specialize in Nurtured Parenting Skills, which provides parents with strategies/coping skills, effective parenting techniques, and offers support for parents who may have children with behavioral and developmental issues, and/or lack disciplinary skills. Life sometimes presents stressful or traumatic events and I am confident that my experience can assist you through these times.
In my free time, I enjoy relaxing at the spa, watching movies, and good ole' family time. I also love going to the gym; it helps me to relax as well. Balance is key and is also an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle.
