About My Clients
My clients are adults who have experienced trauma of any type, anxiety, depression, life changes, infertility or postpartum concerns. I work well with clients that have an openness to explore the past as well as how that is affect the present and future.
My Background and Approach
I often describe my approach as laid back. Meaning, I am trained in CBT, EMDR and other modalities but ultimately, we will work together to find what combination might work best for you. In my extensive background in working with the chronically mentally ill in Spokane, I have learned to always start where someone is at. I also believe that everyone is of value and deserves to have that space. As laid back as I can be, I can also be direct and solution focused, if that is what is required. The goal is for you to both understand things about yourself but also learn skills to move you forward in life.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that to better understand our background, we can better understand who we are now. I have struggled with anxiety my entire life, and it wasn't until I understood where that came from in my background, could I truly change anything. I am not at all religious, I support Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ+ community and I work my hardest to try and understand where someone might be coming from before I make a decision or a judgement call on them.
