I hope to create a space that feels safe, inviting, and fosters growth and acceptance.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Sioux Falls, SD
I have completed training to work with families and provided family therapy for over a year.
I have helped clients to understand their anxiety responses as well as help them cope with those anxiety responses.
I have worked with adolescents for the past 3 years, working on issues such as school and peer struggles, anxiety, depression, trauma, self esteem, and family conflicts.
I have completed training in Functional Family Therapy. It is a 3 stage model that seeks to identify the underlying emotions that are leading to the conflict in the family, then choosing specific skills to address these and make change, and finally to discuss how to maintain the changes made during therapy.
I have used CBT to help clients address unhelpful thought patterns, learn to understand our thoughts, and work on creating healthier thought processes. I prefer to use CBT as a skill in conjunction with other theories and skills.
