My Approach to Helping
I use humor to help my clients feel connected and safe. Everyone can benefit from having someone listen to them with patience, empathy, and understanding. When we bear witness to another’s experience, we help them feel seen and cared for as individuals. This type of connection allows us to work through tough times more easily.
We have to start where we’re at and work from one place to get to the other. I help my clients understand it’s okay to not be okay. I provide the space to show up and work towards the goals they have for themselves and their lives.
I earned a graduate degree from Adler University and have extensive experience treating adolescents and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, anger management, and stress.
In therapy, I use cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, existentialism, motivational interviewing, and client-centered approaches to set and achieve goals. I treat each client as an individual and don't use a cookie-cutter approach to treatment. In every situation, I put the client first and create a calm yet motivating atmosphere to pave the way for healing and change.
