About My Clients
I have extensive experience in treating teens (16+) and adults, both younger and older with issues ranging from anxiety, stress, depression, trauma history, attachment issues and self-harm/suicidal ideation. I have vast experience with groups and families, as well, but have since decided to place more focus on individual treatment to assist with strengthening therapeutic rapport and increasing positive experience/outcomes in treatment. I also have the ability to offer life coaching services.
My Background and Approach
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Arkansas with a Master's of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with an emphasis in General Counseling. I have over 8 years of experience in the mental health field. ranging from residential treatment, acute inpatient, school-based and even case management. I take an eclectic approach (because there is no one size fits all treatment in therapy), including but not limited to CBT, solution-focused and person-centered techniques with a laidback approach and a little humor. I’ve served teens and adults with depression, stress, suicidal ideation/self-harm, anxiety and relational issues. If at any point I can’t help you, I’ll find someone who can.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
In my line of work, I’ve learned that a great deal of people know how to solve their own problems, they just need a little push in the right direction. If you need a push (or even a kick) to get you started, look no further. You are not "broken" and need to be "fixed", have all of the tools you need for a brighter future, you just need support with using them. Often times, you just need someone to listen and not lecture. Allow me to lend an empathetic ear and facilitative mind to your needs.
