In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

When I was younger I struggled with my own mental health issues (that's where I go all of my areas of specialization). Once I recovered from the issues I was dealing with, I found that I had both a passion for helping other people and a unique knowledge regarding the journey to wholeness. I have found that my own personal experiences have translated into faster healing for my clients.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I am naturally warm, open, and funny (when appropriate). People have always told me that they find me easy to talk to and that opening up with me is easier than most. Part of that may be in part to my sense of humor, which I sporadically use when it will benefit my client in the moment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I have been lucky enough to attend numerous trainings, work with incredible mentors, and make a lot of progress along my own journey of healing, self-discovery, and evolution. I incorporate aspects of all of these things into my therapy sessions. Each session I do can look different from the last as I stay in tune with what is needed in the moment to promote growth and healing. My sessions are a collaborative effort between my client and I. We always work together as equals focused on the same goal.

Work History

I have been practicing psychotherapy for four years and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge, experience, and professional trainings in that time. I have worked in two different treatment centers (one focused on substance abuse for men and the other focusing on treating trauma for women) and have been seeing clients via my private practice for the two years. I was also the Program Director for a women's trauma facility for two years. My areas of specialty are substance abuse, trauma (PTSD), anxiety, depression, codependency, and dysfunctional dynamics, although I am skilled at working with a wide array of clients and issues.
