My Approach to Helping
Counseling is a collaboration between client and therapist. Therapy is much like the refinishing of a fine piece of wood that has seen a lot of life, with evidence to show for it. We work together to address the areas of your life that need healing so that your true beauty may emerge. Rather than be defined by what has happened to you, you may be known for your individual character and strengths. Each individual has inherent value.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
My focus is working with women who have a history of abuse, particularly adult survivors of childhood abuse. I also work with elementary age children, though I am not currently accepting new child clients. Another population I work with are female adolescents struggling with identity and processing all the challenges that adolescents brings with it. I specialize in helping client restore their dignity, increase their window of tolerance, and self-integration or identity. If you need help putting the pieces together, I am here to walk alongside you.
