About My Clients
I frequently work with adults who are going through transitions in life. Whether you are struggling with a recent job loss, divorce, career change, or anxiety in any aspect of life you want to change or you feel "stuck", Better Self is here to help. I also enjoy working with autistic clients. I love working to improve coping mechanisms, social skills, relationships, career advancement, etc. I want clients to be able to reach their fullest potential and be their best selves.
My Background and Approach
I have 10 years of experience working with individuals. I first started working at the school systems doing Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) to kids struggling with different diagnosis. (More on ABA later!) I also worked at an agency working with high crisis behavior such as self-injury and high magnitude aggression for children 2 to 18 years old. Later on, I got to manage two Adult Family Homes for people with developmental disabilities (autism, down syndrome, etc). I got my masters at Gonzaga University and continue to grow my experience as an intern at Frontier Behavioral Health where I got to see clients with Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, anxiety, depression and more. I have seen and counseled many different people with different diagnosis and various challenges. I highly enjoy working with autistic adults as well as anybody going through any life transition. Disclaimer: I am a neurodivergent affirmative therapist. I do not run under ABA practices and I am here to help.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Congratulations in taking the first step in finding a therapist. It is not an easy task and it takes a lot of vulnerability to ask for help. I am here to help, to listen and to guide you in the direction that you want your life to go (it's ok if you still don't know the direction). That's what I am here for. Let's work together!
