One of the most significant components linked to the therapeutic relationship is empathy.
My approach to therapy is being client-centered and empowering the client to direct treatment that fits their specific needs with regards to the goals that they want to achieve.
Many of the clients I treat have experienced some type of trauma in their life and have not truly had their voice heard. Due to the latter, this is the reason I take a more trauma informed care approach when treating clients.

Over the course of 16 years in the mental health field, I have worked as a domestic violence advocate, case manager, and psychotherapist/psychologist providing services to domestic violence survivors, families with child welfare matters, individuals/families experiencing relationship conflict, trauma-related incidents, and emotional and behavioral matters to include anxiety, depression, impulsivity, and anger issues. Many of the therapeutic services I offer entail domestic violence awareness, conflict resolution, assertive communication skill training, anger management, coping skills/anxiety reduction training, parent support, and coaching with regard to empowerment.
