My Background and Approach
As a mother, wife, therapist, educator, and human who makes mistakes, I have walked through my own pain to gain insight into personal power and freedom. I know what it’s like to let anxiety, past struggles, and insecurities discourage and paralyze even the strongest individuals. My style is compassionate, energetic, empowering, and sometimes entertaining. I have extensive experience working with teens, adults, couples, and families through counseling, teaching, and training in outpatient and inpatient mental health settings, including; psychiatric units, detox centers, and a residential treatment facility for women. Acceptance and Empowerment are vital goals in working alongside clients, utilizing components obtained through my Trauma-Focused and Informed Care, Addictions, CBT, and DBT clinical certifications. Let me professionally guide you to learn how to build dynamic relationships, relate to stress and anxiety differently, and find direction personally or professionally.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
We have been given this gift, known as life, and I feel honored to be part of each client’s journey to create an authentic and rewarding experience for themselves and true connections with others. How empowering would it be to stop sacrificing yourself to avoid confrontation with others and discover your own needs, while gracefully and assertively setting boundaries with your partner, kids, boss, family member, or frenemy? I truly believe that everyone is capable, if willing, to create a life based on what they need, and not catering to other's expectations. We can work together to conquer that self-doubt and build confidence to take that job, invitation, or vacation. We will slay those intrusive thoughts and memories to free yourself and get your life back. Let's stop obsessing over the past and start planning for your future. I believe in you.
