My Approach to Helping
I utilize various therapeutic techniques and approaches based on client need, including but not limited to; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Art Therapy, Attachment-based, Coaching, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Culturally Sensitive, Dialectical (DBT), Eclectic, Family Marital, Family Systems, Mindfulness-based (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Play Therapy, Psychodynamic, Transpersonal.
I work with children, teens, and adults to reach their treatment goals as well as cope with any issues they may face within a safe and accepting therapeutic environment.
I like to develop a treatment plan with the help of my client based on their individual goals and preferences with the guidance of what the current research shows is the best evidenced-based treatment for the presenting issue. In using a collaborative approach and working together we will be able to utilize your strengths to develop a treatment plan and goals that best fit your needs. I believe that it is important for clients to find a good balance in life and assist them in this journey.
In addition to counseling, I enjoy spending time with my husband and 5 children (ages 1-18), some activities I enjoy in my spare time include antiquing, crafting, binge watching shows, traveling, walking in nature, cuddling with my animals, listening to a variety of music, fishing, sporting events, massages and chocolate.
