My Approach to Helping
Are you ready to move forward in your life, free from circumstances and emotions that have held back? Making the investment in your well-being can help you become the person you want to be, living the life you hoped for. Risk and change are scary ideas, but together we can examine what is holding you back and develop a plan that will lead to positive, lasting life changes. Choosing a counselor and entering a treatment relationship can seem overwhelming at first, but taking that step can be your first movement towards a better life.
I have extensive experience with mental health, substance abuse, phobias, burnout/fatigue, women's issues and trauma. I rely particularly on Cognitive Behavioral Approaches CBT), Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness and Solution Focused treatment modalities.
I am deeply compassionate, non-judgmental, insightful, versatile, and have a solid sense of humor. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation to help you determine if I am the right counselor for you.
