4 years of experience

Hello and welcome, I am happy you have made it to this point! Though there is a diminishing stigma with seeking mental health treatment, it is still a huge step to decide to seek the help you are needing. I believe that the most key aspect of a successful treatment is the therapeutic relationship. There must be a level of trust and comfort shared if goals are to be met. In order to help you decide if I am a good fit for you, I’ll tell you a bit about me. I have been counseling for the last four years, with experience in substance use treatment and mental health treatment. I have worked with adults, children, and teens. I particularly have worked with many issues involving: - Anxiety - Depression - Trauma - ADHD - Emotional regulation issues I graduated with a concentration in both trauma and Christian counseling. I am trained in TF-CBT. As for personally, I just love people and it is a great blessing to be able to serve in this capacity for a career.

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

In our first session we will mostly be getting to know one another. I will be conducting an initial assessment to get a better grasp on your background, in several areas. This can sometimes span half of session, or up to a few sessions. This is all based on what you make of it. We may get into treatment planning, but if not, we can get to that at a later session.

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

I have extensive experience working with trauma, especially with teens and adults.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I think it is important to dive into thought patterns and identify how those affect feelings, and in turn affect behaviors. Both the cognitive and the behavioral components are important to redirect, if maladaptive.
