My Approach to Helping
I have enjoyed my extensive work with individuals that have struggled with substance misuse andor poly substance use, in addition to various mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety and PTSD. I genuinely look up to my clients as they are open to implementing new skills and ideas into their already established perspectives in life. It is my belief that the opposite of addiction is connection to healthy individuals, as we are social beings by nature. We long to be wanted, loved and needed, and sometimes seek that longing through maladaptive ways that end up hurting us.
It is my firm belief that clients are experts of their own lives, but sometimes feel stuck for reasons they may not understand. I feel privileged to work with clients who are willing to take a risk and make the jump into seeking help from a complete stranger. I find that an open mind and an open heart are the best ways of supporting another human being.
With a focus on DBT, CBT and trauma focused therapy, I support my clients in finding the person that they have needed all along; themselves. Every person deserves an opportunity to better their quality of life, and it is my honor to support them in that journey.
