About My Clients
It's amazing how an experience can shift how you see yourself, others, or the world. Trauma or loss can be especially challenging to navigate. I'm here to help understand your life perspective and how we can work together to find growth. I work specifically with women and teens to help shift out of the stuck feeling that can come from trauma or grief. I run group a teen girl support group, a mom's group, and a women's empowerment book group.
My Background and Approach
Being a woman comes with it's own challenges. Talk to someone who understands the unique experiences of being a woman in the world. Not all "teen therapists" are specialists in teenagers. My laid back approach helps connect with teens. I work to build empowerment in therapy and put them in the drivers seat of change. I believe all my clients should be empowered through therapy. I understand each individual is an expert of their lives, and I work to partner with you to reach your goals. I'm trained in clinically proven treatments for trauma including EMDR and CPT. I also utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). I work with you to find the best clinically supported therapy to help you in your specific situation.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Counseling doesn’t need to be stuffy or uptight. I believe counseling should be a comfortable, easy conversation on challenging topics. I utilize humor and light hearted metaphors to help keep therapy engaging and approachable.
