I typically discuss therapy goals with my clients during the second session. This is a collaborative process that starts with me asking clients a series of questions to assist them with clearly identifying the scope/areas of focus during our time together. Lastly, goals are written, reviewed, and agreed upon.
For individuals who might be hesitant about starting therapy, I would encourage them to view therapy as an long-term investment in their emotional and mental well-being. Secondly, I would let them know that they play a key role in determining/driving the the flow and pace of treatment. I would also say, talk to others who've benefited from participating in therapy because they may be able to dispel some of the myths and unhelpful beliefs about the therapeutic process.
Treating clients with dignity and respect is one of the key elements I demonstrate when building a therapeutic relationship and trust with my clients. I believe the saying, people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care; " therefore, I strive to create a therapeutic environment where people feel safe and comfortable enough to share so they can do the work necessary to produce desired changes.

I have a passion for working with adults, children, and families. My work experience encompasses community, residential, military, and private practice settings. As a therapist, I come alongside clients to assist them in navigating life's challenges; it is my desire for each client to obtain wholeness to increase their quality of life. I am trained in EMDR and rostered in TF-CBT, two approaches that help individuals heal from trauma and past painful experiences.
