Sometimes, adverse experiences can block us from accessing the inner strengths we have used to cope in the past. My passion is assisting adolescents and adults in recovering from life stressors and transitional life changes. From a trauma-informed perspective, I utilize both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) to assist clients in their healing. I provide an open, safe, and non-judgmental environment and use a client-focused, strengths-based approach. My therapeutic style is empathetic and interactive as I learn about my clients’ strengths, the tools they have previously used, and what goals they wish to accomplish in therapy.
Taking the first step to reach out for help can be difficult. When you find a therapist that fits you, however, the healing, growing, and thriving can be so rewarding! I found this to be true in my own life and enjoy offering these opportunities to the clients I treat. I would love the privilege of walking alongside you as you progress through your journey of discovery and recovery toward safety and serenity. It would be my pleasure and honor to assist you.
