My Approach to Helping
My approach to helping is to lead with compassion, understanding, and respect. We all need help along our journeys at times, and I am here to meet you where you are at, and assist you in meeting your goals. I have a deep passion for sitting with people through their darkest times in life. In therapy, I will provide you with the extra support, skills, and tools, in a non-judgmental and healing atmosphere. Together, we can build more joy, hope, and passion in your life.
More Info About My Practice
I work with individuals, couples, and families on a wide range of issues, including traumatic stress, addiction, and relational distress. I help individuals build a better understanding and relationship with themselves, and the people around them. When working with couples and families, I strive to help each member learn new ways of tuning into their emotional experiences, communicating, managing stress/conflict, and creating structure that is more supportive of everyone involved.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have specialized training to treat traumatic stress (PTSD). The modality I use is called Narrative Exposure Therapy, an evidenced-based treatment that can help reduce the symptoms that people often experience when they survive a traumatic event or multiple events.
I have completed Level 1 of Emotionally-focused Couples Therapy, an evidenced-based treatment help couples grow their love for one another.
I am also experienced in help people overcome addiction, specifically gambling and substance use.
