Are you struggling with excessive worry thoughts, low mood or unexpected rage? Are you trying to parent in a gentle and responsive manner, but your own emotions or past trauma are making it hard? Have you been trying to grow your family, but are feeling stuck due to pregnancy loss or fertility challenges? I see you, and you are not alone. My primary focus is on helping women find balance and peace after experiencing trauma, navigating through life transitions, unhealthy relationships, or loss and grief. Finding the right therapist can feel daunting and confusing. At 3C Counseling and Wellness, I strive to create a non-judgemental space for you to find your voice, be heard and allow you to explore your thoughts, feelings and needs. I offer a safe space to talk through the demands of life and identify practical ways of balancing the care of others and yourself. Please reach out and we can talk further about how I can support you on your journey.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
My intentions as a therapist are all about caring, connecting and creating in collaboration with my clients. Sit down with a caring and empathetic listener and learn to improve or start caring for yourself. We will focus on connecting or re-connecting with resources within yourself, family and the community for support and growth. Ultimately we will work on creating a plan for your life that helps you feel healthy and balanced.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
My toolbox is filled with a variety of techniques to use based on your needs. I work to maintain a strengths-based, trauma-sensitive, client-centered therapy. We will identify how your past impacts your current life, then try to remain present and solution-focused in sessions. I will meet you where you are and help you build skills as needed for areas such as: managing emotions, self-care, expressing needs/building healthy relationships, and navigating trauma reactions. I focus on holistic wellness – caring for the whole person in the context of the environment, mind, body and spirit. Treatment methods may include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Grief Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), and Integrative Mental Health.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
As an empathetic and active listener, I believe in the power of listening more than I talk in order to understand you. Together we will explore your motivations, strengths and barriers. I will be a guide to help you find tools to reach your goals. After approximately 15 years of experience in mental health, community centers, education and medical settings, I have a strong awareness of the systems that may serve as resources or challenges in your care. Having worked with birth to 3, young school-aged children, adolescents and adults I have an understanding of struggles across various stages of life. My passion is to help support parents, especially new parents, parents of young children and those struggling to build the family they want.
