About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Certified in Telemental Health Counseling. I have experience working in outpatient mental health at community agencies, private practice, and drug and alcohol facilities. I use an eclectic approach, recognizing that each individual is unique and may respond differently to various therapeutic methods. I draw from various modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Techniques. My role is to support the client's healing and development with empathy, acceptance, and respect in a judgment-free environment. By tailoring my approach to suit each client's specific needs and preferences, I hope to provide effective and personalized treatment.


FAQs

Reflecting on the journey, there have been numerous significant breakthroughs, each one carrying its own unique sense of fulfillment. However, one particularly memorable experience stands out—the moment when a client completes their treatment journey. Witnessing someone commit to their personal growth with dedication and perseverance is beyond rewarding. To see a complete shift in energy and newfound confidence, as they leave their final session, captures the core of therapeutic transformation.

Clients can expect a highly personalized and flexible process in therapy. Individuals have a deep understanding of themselves, and sessions are not pre-planned or bound by a rigid structure. Instead, we start each session wherever the client feels they need to be. Whether addressing the initial concern that brought them to therapy or exploring any new issues that arise during our work together, the focus remains on their needs and priorities. My goal is to provide holistic support, addressing all aspects of their well-being and helping clients navigate life's challenges with resilience and insight.

The first session is the start of our journey together, where we explore thoughts, emotions, and aspirations. My goal is to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere where clients feel comfortable sharing their concerns. During this session, I'll learn about the client's experiences, values, and reasons for seeking therapy, while also sharing insights into my approach. Transparency is key in building a strong therapeutic alliance. Together, we set the tone for future sessions, laying the groundwork for collaboration, growth, and discovery.

The opportunity to assist others in discovering the best versions of themselves and finding fulfillment in their life journey. Being able to contribute positively to someone's journey toward self-discovery and empowerment fuels my passion for therapy. It's deeply rewarding to form genuine connections with clients, offering support as they navigate life's complexities and uncover their strengths. For me, therapy isn't just a profession; it's a calling driven by a sincere hope to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

    Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

    I specialize in providing individual therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. Throughout my practice, I've had the privilege of assisting clients with a wide array of concerns and diagnoses. Some of these include anxiety, ADHD, depression, grief, life adjustments and transitions, mood disorders, personality disorders, schizophrenia, and trauma. My approach is deeply rooted in creating a supportive and empathetic space where clients feel understood and valued. I understand the unique needs and challenges that each individual faces, and I tailor my therapeutic interventions accordingly. Whether guiding a child through emotional struggles, supporting an adolescent in navigating life transitions, or helping an adult set and maintain boundaries, I am committed to fostering growth, resilience, and well-being in all my clients.
