My Approach to Helping
I have over 10 years experience in the mental health field. I have worked in psychiatric facilities, community mental health, schools, hospitals, dialysis centers, & outpatient programs. I have experience working with trauma, mood disorders, anxiety, depression, and relationship problems.
I work with individuals from all walks of life and tailor therapy to meet each individual's specific need or challenge. I feel every individual is different and has a unique background and experience. I am eclectic in that I do not use a cookie cutter approach in assessing and addressing the best treatment modality for each individual, family or couple. I create an environment free from judgment and that offers care, support, and comfort as these things are important to the therapeutic process. I believe the therapeutic relationship is an important part of the healing process. The road to healing is a journey full of epiphany's and sometimes tears, however, we will work together to get you closer to accomplishing your goals.
