My Approach to Helping

I believe in meeting people where they are in their desire to begin working on the struggles they are dealing with. It is important to me that a therapeutic rapport is developed so there is trust within the therapeutic relationship. I encourage people to look at how they have solved problems and/or concerns in the past and determine if any of those methods would help in the situation today. It is important to me that my clients feel empowered and encouraged about their ability to learn to manage and/or solve any issues or concerns they may have. Confidentiality is of utmost importance to me in my practice. There are some exceptions and those will be discussed with the client.

More Info About My Practice

I have knowledge and first hand experience in working with a Wounded Warrior and immediate family members. I am the mother of a Wounded Warrior and have experienced the emotional and mental toll it takes on the family. I am willing to work with Wounded Warriors, their families and caregivers.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I want my clients to know that when I tell them that I get it, I truly do. I have dealt with my own struggles and difficulties throughout my life. I am more than happy to share my story with clients to ensure there is a level of trust developed and therapeutic rapport is built.
