About My Clients
If you found me, you may struggle to find self confidence or a positive relationship with yourself, you may also feel anxious or depressed. Your self defeating thoughts may be debilitating. Perhaps your relationships suffer. You aren't feeling like your authentic self and it takes a toll on your mental health.
My Background and Approach
I come from community mental health so I have experience working with a large variety of needs. Before graduate school I obtained my certificate in addiction counseling and have knowledge of the 12 steps program. My approach is collaborate, solution focused and using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. I have extensive training in CBT for anxiety, depression and trauma. My training and experience help me be an effective therapist but research shows that what is more effective is a positive relationship between therapist and client. Your feedback is always valuable as we go down this journey together. As your therapist I can help you think differently about yourself and others in order to improve your confidence and reduce anxiety/depression. During the therapeutic process I will help improve your coping skills where needed and other times will simply provide you with a judgment free space for you to explore self acceptance and your authentic self.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My personal philosophy around therapy is that it is a tool used to help you on your journey until you are ready to let go of the helping hand and navigate your world using the coping skills, tools and resources you gained in therapy. My therapy space is a safe space to share what weighs on your mind and in your heart.
