About My Clients

I have a focus of intervention therapy for Women and adolescents, or those in transitional or hopeless stages of life. I see many crisis, depression and relationship challenges. As well as women struggling with substance or domestic abuse. Most of my work experience and education has been gained through Integrated Mental Health.My Religious Studies background has made it ideal to proved Christian counseling to my clients if preferred.

My Background and Approach

I have utilized both Evidence Based and Holistic Modalities in my years of treatment. Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Emotional Intelligence are consistent modalities mastered and utilized in ensuring that wholeness and self-advocacy is instilled in the psychotherapy and service I provide. In addition to these I enjoy practicing person centered therapy approaches and hope to be fully trained for EMDR by 2020.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It is my belief that all clients are treatable and able to succeed in their personal goals and aspirations. My insight and knowledge gained has been a huge contribution to how I have learned, and how I can offer my learning and resiliency to clients I encounter. It is my task to assist them identifying their own strengths and utilize wisdom to set a tone and adjust their surroundings to facilitate the needs they outwardly seek. Mental health care and wellness (Wholeness) is just as if not more significant in cases than physical care and wellness. I have chosen to be a social justice advocate in my field to demand the care needed to meet the needs of clients as diligently as we do in other divisions of healthcare.

I have experience with the following
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
