In Central Time

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

The therapeutic journey we will embark on together is yours. Therefore, therapeutic goals are selected and designed by you, the client. In our first session, we will spend a great deal of time discussing what brings you to therapy and what you hope to achieve as a result of our time together.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am especially passionate about working with clients from a Cognitive Behavioral and Strengths-Based perspective, particularly how one can use their personal resources, abilities, skills, knowledge, and potential to deal with life challenges, meet their needs and achieve their desired outcomes. My greatest reward as a therapist is the opportunity to witness the power of therapeutic partnership in uncovering the strengths and resources we all possess and using them to make impactful changes.

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

Most people believe that the therapist is the expert and typically drives the change process. In other words, many come to therapy believing that the therapist will fix them. However, what most do not realize about therapy is that you, as the client, are the expert of your life, experiences, feelings, and perspectives. This means that, ultimately, you drive change in your life. You already have the tools, skills, strengths, personal resources, and abilities you need to achieve the life you want. My role, as your therapist, will be to partner with you on this journey and support you in uncovering these gems to help you achieve your therapeutic goals.

Work History

I have approximately 14+ years working with children, adolescents, and families in a variety of settings, including schools and private practice. More specifically, I was a Special Education Counselor for almost 6 years which afforded me the opportunity to work with a diverse population of clients that came to counseling with needs ranging from mild to severe. I have experience with individual, group, and family counseling. Additionally, I am well versed in crisis intervention and counseling. Currently, I am broadening my skill set to working with couples and families through a graduate certification program. I am a life long learner and am constantly seeking out opportunities to stretch and grow myself as a professional.
