About My Clients

Have you experienced a traumatic event and you can't stop thinking about it? Do you try to not think about it? Do you avoid places or things that might remind you of it? Are you struggling with interacting with other people, maybe even your significant other or your family members? This can be very upsetting and the pressure to "get over it" can make you feel even worse! It is possible to get better using holistic and creative methods. Let's work together to improve your life!

My Background and Approach

You do not need to be ashamed of your feelings or symptoms. Im here to provide you with a safe, non judgmental place to process stressors and learn skills to help you live your best life. I will never force you to talk about something you don't want to, but I can handle anything you tell me. I have focused my training and experience on working with veterans and those who have experienced trauma, or are dealing with anxiety, stress, or depression. I believe therapy should treat the whole person. I like to use creative methods, but am trained in traditional methods as well (CBT, CPT, and EMDR). We will address what is going on in your brain and how to deal with it! I will teach you strategies to deal with your symptoms. We will work together to develop a treatment plan that will best serve your needs and help you live the life that you want to live by having healthy relationships, finding meaning, and experiencing joy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that there are many ways for us to become healthy. Counseling is one of those ways but I am passionate about helping my clients identify others methods as well. I believe everyone can and should participate in creative activities. If you are willing to explore this avenue it can be very rewarding for you. I used art when recovering from physical health issues when I was in the Army, so I know firsthand how powerful it can be. I think we should do our bet to take care of the planet. Caring for the planet and spending time in nature can be healing as well. This is why I believe in the power of Horticulture Therapy. I believe a lot of our mental health issues come from society's (and/or our culture's) beliefs and expectations. I am passionate about social justice and I am actively learning in order to best support those impacted by systemic inequities. I want to be your coconspirator.
