My Background and Approach
My journey in becoming a psychotherapist began in walking alongside young women who had been victims of human trafficking. Their strength, courage, and hope for their future inspired me to help others in need and I have continued to have the privilege of diving into some of the most difficult struggles in a person’s life including depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, and divorce. My approach is to cultivate and identify strengths within you to utilize for this journey. You have more precious gems than you may know that you are designed and equipped with! This is integrated with cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) which helps understand how thoughts, feelings, and your behaviors are all intertwined and play a part in breaking negative patterns that may have been created. I also utilize trauma-focused CBT, EMDR (W-2) Trained, psychodynamic, solution-focused, and family systems approaches depending on what is most relevant for each person.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As I continued in my journey of helping others, I have experience working with children and teens with autism, victims of sexual abuse, and offenders of sexual abuse. I also have experience integrating Christian faith into the therapeutic process in finding healing through biblical truths and encountering Jesus as He is the ultimate healer and the Peace-Bringer. I have a great deal of experience working with individuals of all spiritual backgrounds. It is my privilege and honor to walk through the most devastating of circumstances and find light, hope, and beauty through the journey. I am excited to see what revelation, change, and healing is on the horizon for you.
