About My Clients

My clients generally have the diagnoses of anxiety or mood disorders and offered a mindfulness based, trauma focused approach using Cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. Together we can erase the black and white of problem solving, discover the grey area and add some confidence to your story. You are in charge of your story, and i can provide structured therapy worksheets and or homework to help assist you learning about yourself and ways to improve your next chapter.

My Background and Approach

I grew up in Wisconsin and went to UWvwhitewater for my bachelors in psychology and art, and I have masters of science in Mental health Counseling and Art Therapy from Springfield College in Massachussetts. I love the mind body spirit approach of relaxing the body to settle the mind and balance ones spirit. Mindfulness, art and therapy can make for a wonderful conversation as we work together to help you reach your goals. I can help you learn more about cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy as you grow your list of coping skills and communication strategies to improve your confidence and self worth. Using creative materials, or board games we can visually or metaphorically help you see your story from a different perspective an or use structured worksheets to give you a well rounded approach to your concerns. im trained as a general counselor and can refer you out for concerns that require a specialized training like severe depression, adhd or autism.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in honesty, the importance of communication and being supportive of each other. If you can not make a session please call to let me know so i can give someone else the opportunity or take time for myself. Communication is key when reaching our goals, building relationships with others in our lives, communicating our feelings and needs, problem solving why we feel the way we do, identifying who we are and who we want to be, and so much more.If you are not comfortable sharing, i would encourage you to reflect and share what it is that makes you uncomfortable, as i am growing as well and am open to feedback. i look forward to being a part of your journey, and i appreciate you for allowing me to help you.
