I work with clients from various walks of life ages 12 years and older who experience depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, learning disabilities, and relationship as well as emotional difficulties. No matter the reason for seeking therapy--whether to better manage your anxiety or to improve the quality of your relationships with family and friends--you’re taking the first step, and I congratulate you for that because it’s not an easy thing to do.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
During our work together, you will be able to express yourself in a safe, non-judgmental space. As a psychotherapist, I collaborate with my clients in order to establish goals that they want to work on over the course of their treatment. My goal is to help guide you in the direction you want to be in and help you recognize your strengths so that you can use them to help you grow emotionally as well as with managing whatever life throws at you.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I specialize in helping people restructure their way of thinking to a safe and mindful place. I can support you getting through life stressors. I use a variety of techniques such as CBT, DBT, Person Centered, Solution Focused, Motivational Interviewing, Strength Based, Trauma Focused, and Acceptance and Commitment. I can also help you navigate addiction or grief issues. I will do my very best to help you move toward health and happiness. Sessions are currently offered via teletherapy.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
My biggest strengths are working to create safety plans to ensure you can maintain safety as well as learning what is triggering you. I focus on building off your lagging skills, and support you with learning different skills. Being depressed or anxious should never overpower your life and there are different ways to manage it so that you feel in control again.
