In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

In order to take care of others, we must learn to take care of ourselves.

What does a first session with you look like?

In the first session, I will go over any questions, concerns, and fears about therapy. I open the floor to share an introduction of yourself, I share my background as a therapist, such as education, specialties, experience, and responsibilities as your therapist. We then will go over the answers to the assessments presented in the initial assessment documentation submitted. We will close the session with client commitment until the next session.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

There is different types of therapy; therapy is not a one-size fits all. There is emerging models of therapy that can work for you and not work for others. It is an experience I encourage everyone to do.

Work History

I began my career as an admissions counselor for a drug and substance abuse residential treatment facility, there I assisted families and adolescents begin the road to recovery. Following that, I assisted families by providing therapy in the community or their home, here finding ways to cope with the challenges that surround them day to day. In the current day, I use the techniques of cognitive-behavioral, narrative therapy, motivational interviewing to assist families, couples, adolescents, and adults with their own challenges. If appropriate, and in-person sessions incorporate the use of horses in assisted therapy.
