My Approach to Helping
I enjoy working with my clients, who while in counseling with me, find relief from pain, gain new insight, function better, discover more fulfillment in their relationships, increase their self-esteem, and grow in their spiritual lives. I have helped clients work through childhood or recent traumas, depression and anxiety issues, self-esteem issues, boundary issues, young adult transitions, couples conflict, parent-child relationship issues, assertiveness training, and parenting skills training.
I am certificated as a Family Wellness Instructor, where I can provide parenting skills training classes and workshops to individuals, schools, and groups. Also, I am trained in using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. EMDR helps to resolve disturbing emotional material secondary to traumatic events, in order to facilitate natural growth and healing processes.
