Hello and welcome :) You may be reading this because you need support or guidance as you navigate through life. You may constantly feel overwhelmed or stressed out. You may be struggling to manage relationships. You may notice that painful memories "pop up" throughout the day. You may feel "stuck" or "lost." Whether you wish to heal, to cope more effectively, to gain insight, or to have more successful relationships, therapy can help you to achieve your goals. I consistently practice empathy and non-judgment (I am also skilled in sarcasm). Beginning therapy is a brave choice and I would be honored to walk with you on your journey.
I take an eclectic approach to therapy by integrating elements of different models to best meet the needs of each individual client. Most frequently, I incorporate elements of the following models: eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and motivational interviewing.
We also offer Behavioral Health Intervention Services (BHIS) (an in home worker) whom works with children 5-18 on skill building (i.e., anger management, communication, relationships, coping, listening, boundaries, etc.). BHIS is a great addition to the therapy process for quicker improvements and family interaction! BHIS is an IA Medicaid service.
