About My Clients

I practice trauma informed, person centered, & solution focused with ability to branch out and select other options that best fit the client. I also seek to treat the whole person and combine addiction or mental health treatment as needed. I work with a variety of populations from all walks of life. I also tend to bring humor into the sessions.

My Background and Approach

Trauma informed + Solution focused + Person centered are my main go-tos for therapy modalities. I also reach into existential, positive psych, occasional CBT, & psychodynamic. I don't rule out one modality over another, instead we will work collaboratively to find what works for you. I check in with clients throughout their time with me to see if what we’re doing is working. Although I specialize in dual-diagnosis, I enjoy working with a variety of concerns through a variety of populations. I am a trauma-informed yoga teacher. I incorporate yoga if client is open to it. I am trained to provide a variety of trauma specific modalities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I serve in the National Guard and have been for 17 years and counting. I’ve been deployed 2x in my life with countless TDY assignments. I do have training/deployment obligations that take me from regular scheduled sessions with clients but with proactive planning and communication it doesn’t become a problem to maintain connection while gone. I am a serial volunteer where I have had a helping hand in starting several nonprofit animal rescues. Because of this, I have a house full of cats who packed their bags and moved in when I fostered them. I am in a long term relationship. I’m an advocate for social justice and rooting for the underdog. I practice yoga or workout on the daily. I’m a big proponent of a gratitude practice. I also encourage a lifestyle that allows for a connection to the universe.
