My Approach to Helping
I believe that everyone deserves to be fulfilled the best version of themselves. Since 2006, I have seen people make significant life and behavior changes, getting upstuck from old patterns and view their world through new a lens. My approach is strengths-based and holistic, addressing the whole person. I am compassionate and non-judgmental, but also direct and matter-of-fact in my approach.
My passion is working with college students and adults on mental health, trauma and addiction issues. I work collaboratively with you to identify goals and solutions that work best for you in your life now. You will always have a choice in the direction therapy goes in order to ensure it remains beneficial to you. It is common for people to experience more than one issue at a time, therefore we will sort through and make a game plan to best fit your needs.
As a Clinical Social Worker and Certified Addiction Counselor, I am trained to address complex issues using evidenced-based interventions. I am also trained in EMDR which directly addresses and reprocesses traumatic experiences. My goal is to help you develop deeper insight and self awareness into your thought and relationship patterns, provide a safe place to work through difficult issues or addictions, and provide tools that may help you achieve overall balance for a lifetime. Deciding to start the therapeutic process takes courage and I would be honored to join you on your journey. Let me help you get back on track.
