I help clients to recognize thinking errors and give them tools to address and make changes to how they approach issues in their lives.
I have fourteen years of experience working in the school setting with elementary, middle, and high school students. I have worked primarily with students in specialized programming for emotional and behavioral issues (serious emotional disabilities and/or autism spectrum). I feel one of my largest strengths is relationship and rapport building with clients built by showing respect and genuine interest in what changes they would like to see happen in their lives.
I have created various curriculum for helping children and adolescents understand where anxiety comes from, how to identify their triggers, and creating a "toolbox" of interventions.
I have advanced training in Sources of Strength, Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST), and Suicide to Hope
