Mental health is an ever changing field, I enjoy the changes that have taken place over the past decade. I appreciate how therapists and clients are no longer subjected to formal and monotonous therapy. Allowing tele-therapy has been especially helpful in ensuring that mental health services are more accessible to everyone.
My journey as a therapist began as an educator. As an elementary school teacher, I realized that many children lacked emotional regulation and coping skills. While often labeled as being children with behavioral issues, schools lacked the resources and structure needed to help them. Not only did the students struggle in this area, but I also found that they were merely mirroring the behaviors of their caretakers. Children with unresolved trauma grow into being adults who have difficulty functioning also. My goal is to help children and adolescents develop adaptive coping skills to navigate them through life because problems will always occur. I encourage my clients to understand that our emotions are not negative, it is the behavior that follows. I also strive to help adults cope with past experiences that influence current thinking and behavior patterns.
I take on an Integrative approach to therapy. I believe that humans are ever changing which requires more than one modality.
