My Approach to Helping
Navigating through life’s highs and lows can pose a challenge as one juggles school, career, family, and other external and internal stressors. Everyone has the potential to unlock who they want to become and achieve a balanced life. Having experience in working with children and adults in different capacities over my career, it has become my desire to help those I work with find their own potential and assist in empowerment. I have an extensive background in woking with anxiety, depression, and psychotic disorders in both children and adults in the community mental health setting and hospital setting.
I use Mindfulness and other relaxation-based techniques as well as Cognitive-behavioral therapy. My style is to take my lead from my clients and utilize areas that are already working for them ie) interests, hobbies, values, etc. and work to utilize these resources to assist personal empowerment and success toward goals.
My approach to treatment is working with the “whole person”. Looking at all aspects of what makes up the individual is imperative in achieving balance. That being said, there is no “one size fits all” therapy. Finally, I have extensive experience in working with the LGBTQ community as well as those with severe depression and anxiety.
