My Approach to Helping
Therapy can be a wonderful place to begin the journey to understanding yourself, your journey and create life changing growth. Working from a trauma-informed and cognitive behavioral model, I utilize a strengths based perspective to shine light on and empower individuals to transform their lives and relationships. I believe in providing empathy and nonjudgmental support, creating the safety for others to explore areas in their lives that could be working better and assist them in developing the mindfulness, awareness and skills to change their circumstances and achieve their goals.
My specialtiescertifications include EMDR (preliminary), CBT, and CPT. I specialize in treating issues related to PTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction, body imageeating disorders, and domestic violence. Due to my passion in these areas, I have spent many years of my life volunteering, serving, and advocating in regard to these issues.
I believe healing and change are possible for anyone when they feel they are in a compassionate, trusting therapeutic relationship where they feel safe. I will work hard to create this environment for you so that you feel secure enough to explore the root of any suffering and capable enough to find the freedom and life that awaits you on the other side.
