I believe counseling can help an individual get through their toughest moments in life by providing them with the proper skills they need.

Trauma is something that I have decided to make a specialty of mine due to the impact it has on an individual's life. Trauma can impact an individuals' values, beliefs, self-worth and identity. This is why I invest in learning who that individual is to the core and work with them every step of the way through that self-recovery. I utilize EMDR therapy to help desensitize overwhelming trauma memories and help individuals reprocess it in a healthier way.
I have recently completed training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and am working on certifcation. I have been working with individuals who are trying to resolve trauma for over a year. Trauma is something that effects most individuals in one way or another and I have made this an area of focus for my professional career. I don't just look at an individual's trauma, I look at the person as a whole, take into account their experiences and find the best path for healing.
Besides having personal experience dealing with depression, I have over 2 years of experience helping individuals work through depression. I work at getting to the core of where the depression stems from, offer psycho-education and provide tools catered specifically to the individual to help them regain control of their life. I work with each client to help them through the darkest of times and am there every step of the way.
CBT Theory has been something I have aligned with since the beginning of my counseling career. I work with individuals by coming up with customized techniques to help them overcome their depression and anxiety. I understand that everyone has different interests and things that work for them which is why I tailor those specific interests with techniques that can be used to reframe their negative thoughts into progress.
