About My Clients

Do you suffer from panic attacks, anxiety or trauma, does everyday feel like a struggle to cope with just daily things? I understand what you are feeling, that sinking overwhelming feeling that things are not going to get better, so you chose to do nothing at all just to get through the day. This can be a terrifying feeling to live with, and I do not want you to have suffer any longer. I use several different methods to help teach you skills to manage these feelings and get your life back.

My Background and Approach

I use video, phone and chat messages to hold sessions so you can stay in the comfort of your home while we work through some of the issues that are causing you distress. I believe that building yourself a healthy toolbox of skills is key to managing daily life with or without suffering from mental fatigue, but they become even more important in life when you are challenged with things. I use a person-centered, holistic, multicultural, and eclectic approach in treatment, providing you with the best care tailored to your needs. I use evidence-based techniques including cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, seeking safety, lies that bind, “classical” counseling and solution-focused counseling. I would describe myself direct, but I am always empathetic, non-judgmental and supportive. I can push you past your comfort zone to resolve the issues you want to change within yourself to create a new healthy lifestyle!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we all do the best we can everyday with the tools we have been given, some of which are healthy ones and some are unhealthy ones. I have learned through my own personal journey that using healthy skills have helped me overcome some of my toughest battles, from having a child that was gravely ill and told she would never walk again to a serious auto accident that placed me in a wheelchair for a period of time. We have both since recovered and the thing that allowed us to achieve recovery both physically and mentally was having an outlook of finding the positive in all the trauma, even just small positives were huge to us! I like to take this positive approach to all things I do in life. As even when things are raining and cloudy, I seek out that positive outlook as we must have some rain for things to be rainbows and sunshine! I do not mind if you do not share that positive outlook, but beware it is contagious! If you are interested in learning more, just message me.
