Hello there and Welcome! It is nice to meet you. I am a licensed professional counselor, with years of clinical experience. I have provided services to individuals experiencing various emotional issues with a specialty focused on trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. I also have a particular interest in working with individuals who have endured emotional distress due to the nature of their work. Do you need help in letting go, coping with trouble from the past, or managing a current situation that is emotionally challenging or stressful? Need support in identifying the problem to gain a better understanding? Have you thought about seeking guidance to develop solutions that line up with your future goals and vision to fulfill your purpose? Together, we can work on developing solutions to uncover and identify long-standing behavior patterns and beliefs that may be holding you back. At times, circumstances and events can change the direction of one’s life resulting in difficult situations. Whatever your journey has been or when things didn't always go as you’d hoped or planned, you do not have to manage things by yourself. You can obtain assistance to cope with your current circumstances.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During my initial meeting with you, my objective is to provide emotional support while gaining an understanding of your issues, expectations, and goals. I will be completing an intake assessment by asking you basic questions about your background and concerns to assist you in exploring alternatives. You will also have an opportunity to inquire about my counseling techniques, research, previous work, and training to determine if we are a good fit to embark on such an important journey of self-discovery! The work that we’ll do is collaborative, and you can expect respect and professionalism. I encourage participation that can aid you in moving things forward at your own pace. You may ask me questions at any time to gain clarification about my feedback or a particular counseling style.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I use an integrative method, which emphasizes different techniques that may include cognitive behavioral, strengths-based, person-centered, humanistic, and trauma-informed care. During our work together, I may find it necessary to probe, offer suggestions, share an idea, or ask you to participate in homework that inspires self-reflection, introspection, and follow-through. This is done to encourage you to continue working on a specific area of concern. We will also have an opportunity to mutually share knowledge. I have also found that worksheets can be useful in assisting an individual to gain clarity in developing coping strategies. In coordinating your care, you may wish to involve another person or entity. We can review the circumstances to agree upon a suitable approach.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I give honor to each person’s unique path as they work to rekindle their spirit. Based on my previous work with people who have suffered trauma and other challenges, I do believe that out of despair, something exciting and beautiful can happen! I will listen, be patient, and allow you to work at your own pace, but also challenge you to explore possibilities for your emotional growth and well-being.
