How has your particular field of specialization evolved in recent years and how has that impacted your work?

Working full-time with adults, children and families has given me great insight to the strength and complexity of families. I have grown as a clinician as the field learns more about the impact of trauma on individuals and how hope is an essential component of resiliency. I believe every person can be a success story.

What does a first session with you look like?

During our initial sessions we will explore what brings you into treatment, history of the issue and what you would like to see different in your life. I also like to explore your strengths and how you have developed these strengths over time. I find great insight in exploring how you will know when treatment is complete and what that will look like.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

The key component to the therapeutic relationship is honest and authentic communication that guides the treatment. As a Therapist I am invested in the progress of my consumers and strive for observable success that meets their goals.
