About My Clients

I offer NON religious therapy - what you believe is up to you. I have worked with a people going through life transitions, understanding trauma, and exploring what makes healthy and happy relationships. I believe that therapy is a tool to assist in times of need, and in therapy I want to support the individual to come to their own conclusions. My end goal is for my clients to feel that they have their own tools to solve their problems.

My Background and Approach

My background as a social worker includes work with people experiencing intimate partner violence and recovering from childhood physical and sexual abuse, as well as people who have experienced religious trauma. My approach is non-judgmental, assisting clients with understanding their unmet needs and the healthiest ways they can achieve them. My preferred techniques include EMDR, CBT, IFS, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapies. If you are seeking therapy for another person (18+), I require that individual contact me on their own before I will set an intake. This ensures the client is invested in the therapy. I also am ONLY credentialed with Cigna in Arizona and not Minnesota. I am not credentialed with state insurance plans (Medicaid/Medical Assistance/AHCCCS) or EAPs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all people in essence want the same things - to be cared for and care for others, to be safe, and to have accomplishments and recognition from others. I don't believe that needing therapy means something is "wrong" with a person, and I think that what constitutes a problem or success can look different for each person. I have an office in the Ahwatukee neighborhood of Phoenix, Arizona, where I see clients online and in person M-Th, from 9 AM - 4 PM (Phoenix time). I offer secular therapy. That means I do not pray with clients, use supernatural elements in therapy, or reference religious teachings as part of therapy - I stay spiritually neutral. People from any faith practice are welcome as clients, and this includes those who reject religion or are unsure of their beliefs. Whether or not a client wants to talk about religion in therapy with me is up to them.
