My Approach to Helping
As a licensed professional counselor, I believe in a strong therapeutic relationship that allows me to meet my clients "where they are" in order to meet the goals that we set for therapy. I believe in the counseling process as a way for individuals to improve their lives. Above all, I am passionate about helping those in need. As a therapist, I provide guidance and support through utilizing client's skills within treatment, providing emotional space, and helping clients to identify patterns that are no longer working for them. I work with clients to identify thoughts and feelings that help them understand their experiences through exploring meaning and connections. I walk with the client throughout the therapeutic process with a client-tailored approach toward their own awareness and change.
I use a variety of evidence-based treatment methodologies in order to support my clients, including Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and other evidence-based models as necessary.
