My Approach to Helping
My highest priority is to create a safe place for you to grow, explore, and heal. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, which means I will look at your situation systemically, working alongside you to see the whole picture of why the issues you want to address exist. This will best help us know how to address and resolve them. I have been working as a counselor since 2002 and love nothing more than helping people reach their full potential.
I have extensive experience working with trauma, PTSD, c-PTSD, and DID. I also have extensive training in working with women, children & adolescents, and have over a decade of experience working intensively with children and teens ages 2 to 18. I am trained in play therapy, EMDR, IFS, Solution Focused Therapy, and DBT, and do use these modalities primarily.
I am client-centered and will meet you where you are and work with you around the issues you are ready to work on. I see therapy as a collaborative process where I work with you. You are the expert of you! If you'll allow me to, I would love to help guide your journey to healing. There is always hope for change. Joy is waiting for you on the other side!
