Sometimes you just need someone to talk to. Someone to listen and try to understand rather than “fix.” My goal is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere for you to process thoughts and emotions, heal from trauma, learn to cope with life’s challenges, and hopefully even share some laughs. Understanding that you are the unique product of your life experiences, I utilize a holistic approach to treatment, ensuring individualized care.

In client-centered Music Therapy, the client informs the interaction. Music Therapy works to address what we want to change by combining speech, movement, and body based interventions. This method of treatment works to quickly address the reflexive parts of the brain (where our survival instincts and fight or flight responses live). As a therapist, I'm there to provide support, expertise, and guidance. This type of therapeutic interaction can be especially accessible if talking about an event or identifying something specific is challenging.

I practice from a Rogerian perspective, which prizes the alliance between counselor and client. I empower clients toward meaningful change by maintaining a powerful space of unconditional acceptance and invitation. I endeavor to place you in the driver's seat, as only you can navigate to the heart of the matter, and that often requires an honest, open context along with someone who cares and is willing to learn from you. Therapy sometimes requires Cognitive-Behavioral techniques, but always communication. You learn and grow as you work to express your experience, and you take that with you.

People start to heal the moment they feel heard. I believe that hope and healing can be found, even in places of great pain. Life can become stressful and feel overwhelming at times. Having someone to walk beside you through those times helps ease the burden. As we develop a relationship with each other, I have found that people develop insight into what brought them in to see me. I focus on the whole person and try to understand what is being communicated through the behaviors, not just focusing on the symptoms.

Some clients seek treatment not because they have a mental health issue but because they are experiencing a situation, relationship, or life event that is causing them emotional distress. Therefore, I am a goal-oriented therapist that uses an eclectic approach to treatment. I do not believe that one size fits all as each human being is unique and so are their circumstances. I use many different theoretical frames of reference such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, Attachment Theory, Behavioral, Trauma Focused CBT, and others to assist my clients develop insight and change behaviors.
