My Approach to Helping
I know that getting help can be really hard, but I am here to help in any way. My therapy styles is based on where the individual is in their mental health journey, and I pull from different counseling methods to meet their specific needs.
I earned a graduate degree in mental health counseling from McKendree University. I serve adolescents and adults and am especially skilled at helping individuals with unresolved trauma, working with survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence, and treating anxiety and depression symptoms. I am also eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) certified and use this skill to help process trauma.
In addition to EMDR, I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to help individuals manage anxiety and depression. I take a goal-oriented approach to counseling so each person knows exactly what they are working toward. I also encourage autonomy and empowerment through client-centered treatment methods.
