As a strength-based, trauma informed psychotherapist my goal is for you to learn how to gain insight into your symptoms and increase positive functioning throughout your life. I help support with learning how to cope safely with overwhelming feelings and to improve positive communication with the people in your life. I use empathy and support while creating a safe space to allow you to process your feelings and life experiences. We will work collaboratively to create goals and work towards making change.
I have been providing mental health support for over 10 years to adolescents, children, transitional aged youth, adults and families. I am a licensed clinical social worker with experience providing individual, family, group and couples therapy. I treat trauma using a combination of Trauma-Informed Services, Seeking Safety and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). In addition I utilize the following treatment modalities: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Family Systems, and Strength-Based Services.
My Treatment Specialties Include:
-Transitional Aged Youth
