I’ve always been curious about people and what motivates them. The difficulties I’ve had in life and my interest in people led me to a career that allows me to help people through their own challenges. When life gets difficult, we need professionals we can trust.I aim to walk alongside my clients as they discover their own strengths and find a balanced, satisfying life. Through therapy with me, many clients learn new skills and techniques that allow them to make desired changes, set realistic goals, and move toward a fulfilling life. For three years, I worked in a school setting, helping emotionally disturbed children. In 2008, I earned my licensure and began working as a therapist, serving all ages as they seek to maintain mental health and increase life satisfaction. I utilize CBT (cognitive behavior therapy), EMDR (eye movement densensitization and processing), solution-focused therapy, and other strategies, depending upon my client’s specific needs. My therapy focuses on treating depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, mood issues, grief, ADHD, and recovery.

What made you want to become a therapist?

Every person has a story to tell and I’ve always worked hard to understand what makes people who they are. My own life experiences have led me to want to partner with clients to help them through their difficult times.

What do you like most about working with clients?

I love helping my clients see themselves and their world from a perspective that helps them have a more satisfying life.

Why do people get stuck? How do you help clients get unstuck?

People often get stuck because of trauma. I use EMDR to help people process trauma.

Do you use any specific counseling method or philosophy?

I use an eclectic approach, drawing from a variety of theoretical frameworks including systems theory, cognitive-behavioral, Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) and psycho education.

What is one thing that you try to teach every client?

I often find myself talking with clients about “taking it one day at a time, one moment at a time.” It’s a motto I find helpful personally as well as professionally.

What is one thing you've learned from a client?

I believe every client is the expert on her/himself. I have been inspired to hear the stories of my clients, to hear how they have survived and then learned to thrive through sometimes very difficult circumstances.

What should clients expect during their first counseling session with you?

My goal is always to make the session time as useful to the client as possible. This means different things to different people so I like to use the first session as a time to learn about each other and determine what the client is looking for in therapy.

What would you say to a client who was nervous about his or her first session?

I respect and understand that it’s difficult to meet a complete stranger and open up about deeply personal things. I have done that as well and I know it takes strength and can also be anxiety inducing.

How do your clients know if counseling is working?

I work with my clients to make collaborative goals at the beginning of therapy and we check in as therapy progresses to discuss progress and modification of goals.

I trust that people are wired to heal, and my goal, as a therapist, is to support my clients through the process of self-healing. Choosing whether to begin psychotherapy or not can produce anxiety in and of itself, and I understand. While actively addressing my client’s goals and needs, I create a supportive therapeutic environment.

I work with people who are facing a broad range of challenges as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I specialize in working with young adults and adolescents who are abuse and/or trauma survivors and/or who struggle with anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. Depending upon each client’s needs, I utilize a variety of therapeutic methods including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), and mindfulness-based strategies.

Together, my clients and I work toward healthier relationships, behaviors, and thoughts.

What type of clients do you most enjoy working with?

I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults.

What do you like most about working with clients?

I enjoy seeing my clients develop insight and awareness of their own ability to change their life by changing thought patterns and behaviors.

What is one thing that you try to teach every client?

I try to teach every client that they are worthy and lovable. In my practice, I've primarily seen symptoms to have stemmed from lack of childhood attachment and broken relationships.

What should clients expect during their first counseling session with you?

My first session with a client is primarily to establish a therapeutic relationship. I do this by collecting a psychosocial history and developing an understanding of the client's core belief system that is causing current symptoms.

What would you say to a client who was nervous about his or her first session?

I always thank my clients at their first session for having the courage to work towards change, as change is hard. Feeling nervous is normal, however, hopefully after the therapeutic relationship is established, this anxiety will dissolve.

Can clients become dependent on counseling?

Yes, this is a normal process in beginning work together, however, I attempt to foster self-determination in my clients as well as teaching them to trust their own judgment as well as seek support from outside relationships.
