FAQs

This is difficult to choose. I would have to say a teenage client of mine who was suicidal and engaged in self-harm cutting behaviors. I met with this client twice per week for nearly three years. The client has been free of cutting for six months, graduated high school, and is attending a University. Whereas, previously, she was unsure life would ever be worth living. The breakthrough happened because of an accurate diagnosis, collaboration with school staff and medical professionals, ongoing emotional support, a trauma informed perspective,and a utilization of cognitive behavioral therapy. What was most important, in my opinion, was the therapeutic relationship and the connection shared.

A collaborative approach to identify goals, learn new coping strategies, and engage in a tailored plan and modality to suit client's needs. Clients can expect ongoing support and unconditional positive regard.

Assessing safety and presenting problem, reviewing policies and procedures, confidentiality, client expectations of treatment, and building rapport.

A desire to connect with others and help client's uncover their own strengths and capabilities. We all need someone to believe in us and offer unconditional support through the most challenging times. To be there for another person's journey as a resource and emotional support; I can't think of anything else I would rather do. Essentially, making a difference.

Highlights

    What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

    Emphasizes an empathetic, non-judgmental approach to therapy and fosters an environment of safety and support. It is a strong belief that my role is to assist clients in discovering their strengths, patterns of thinking, and to identify coping strategies that can help make daily life more manageable. Clients can expect a therapist who is dedicated to each individual and challenges them to become better versions of themselves. Lastly, clients can expect to laugh. Therapy is a platform for when life becomes challenging. It is also a platform for when life goes right and you want to share something positive. It is important to savor the wins and be able to laugh when needed.

    What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

    I utilize evidence-based therapies, including Psychotherapy, Attachment-Based Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychodynamic Therapy & Trauma-Focused Therapy.

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

    Utilizing a cognitive behavioral approach to help challenge negative patterns of thinking that often leads to anxiety and depression. Helping client's acknowledge the role their upbringing and trauma history has on current problems. Educating clients on cyles of abuse, grief stages, and the benefits of mindfulness. Listening to a story, empathizing, and joining with the client to help process trauma. Building a foundation of trust, providing insight into behaviors of clients and other individuals in client's lives. Most importantly, being another human being on the other side of the room or screen and embodying authenticity is important and needed in my work.
