My Approach to Helping

I help college students and young professionals overcome trauma, depression and other difficult circumstances to reclaim hope and find their place to impact the world. While my approach is flexible based on client need, I usually focus on skill-building in the first few sessions to help a client feel more competent to handle symptoms. I then move toward the deeper work of helping the client discover and heal from whatever is causing the symptoms. The final phase of treatment is focused on helping my client optimize their functioning to be able to achieve their personal goals. I see my role as a therapist as both coach and partner; I'll work with you to set goals and then provide you with coaching and accountability to reach those goals.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have special experience and training in working with survivors of trauma, such as abuse, car accidents, medical trauma, etc. I seek to help survivors develop positive coping skills and safe spaces before delving into the deeper aspects of healing.

My Role as a Therapist

I see my role as a therapist to be that of guide; I'll help you create a vision of the future you want before mapping out the steps we'll take to get there. Then I'll provide accountability, insights, and encouragement to keep you moving forward toward your vision.
