My Approach to Helping
I try and pride myself on being as informed as possible in knowing how to treat mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, substance use issues, family dynamic concerns, healthy relationships and life transitions. My main specialty is working with adolescents and adults with substance use issues but I recognize that these are often just a symptom of other concerns. This is how I’ve gotten the experience I’ve needed in order to be a well rounded counselor and help those who are struggling. Nothing happens in a vacuum and by understanding the individual parts to the whole person, I can better help them work towards their goals.
I use multiple different theoriesmodalities such as Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) informed, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Person-Centered, Solution Focused and Strength Based. It is important to me that I individualize my sessions to meet the needs of each client.
During this strange time of uncertainty and isolation, mental health issues and substance use are on the rise. I pride myself on creating a relaxed and non-judgmental environment so that all my clients feel safe and understood.
