My Approach to Helping
There is an unlimited capacity for change through the therapeutic relationship. My approach is one of collaboration with the individual to help foster those changes that improve your quality of life. I help to create a safe and nonjudgmental environment where an individual can explore their life and improve their present. I am in long term recovery from an addiction that almost took my life and I understand true struggle and resilience.
I have worked for 17 years in environments including psychiatric hospitals, high school, residential co-occurring facilities, intensive outpatient, faith-based programs, and private practice. I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, EMDR, and Solution focused therapy. Whether it is addiction, anxiety, depression, trauma, or life changes, there is a path up and out of suffering. Let's begin the journey together.
