My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), who has been working in the mental health field since 2016. I have experience working with Severe and Persistent Mentally ill clients, and victims of trauma. I have extensive training in Trauma-Focused CBT. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substance use issues, career challenges, persistent suicidal ideation, and psychotic disorders.
My counseling style is warm and interactive, with a Christian background while applying biblical principles to promote emotional well-being. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and client-centered counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs while including biblical scriptures, guided prayers, and mindfulness techniques.
I have experience as a youth leader within the local church and have been involved in many services promoting spiritual growth.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you.
