Hello, I am an experienced clinical trauma professional who engages in a holistic mind, body, and spirit approach in my work with racially, economically, sexually, and culturally diverse persons. As a licensed clinical social worker, clinical trauma professional, and mental health integrative medicine professional, I focus on the clients as people, not as conditions or as diagnoses. In working with chronically and complexly traumatized individuals, couples, and families I recognize and interact with clients affirming that they are deserving of empathy, respect, and dignity. To this end, the treatment methods I use are tailored and combined to meet the needs of each specific individual, couple, and family I work with. I counsel clients who are struggling with traumatic stress disorders, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, problem behaviors, and addictive behaviors. The healing journey intentionally addresses the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. Evidenced-based traditional, holistic, and expressively creative client-centered therapeutic processes and interventions are used to help clients overcome limiting, self-defeating thoughts & feelings about self-worth, relationships, and patterns of choices that lead to dysfunctional behaviors. Clients learn to manage the underlying issues that interfere with family, social, vocational, or educational functioning.
