Many people decide to come to counseling because they feel stuck. Often, this "stuckness" is based on a belief or value that has been imposed by someone else. Sometimes, we need help to break out of an unhelpful "mold." My goal is to build a unique relationship in your life where I can provide an unbiased, outsiders perspective on the situations and emotions you are dealing with. Life can be good, and life can also be really hard. How do you cope with the hard stuff? I seem to click really well with teens and young adults. I enjoy working with anyone one-on-one and will do my best to provide a safe and accepting environment.
I have been trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness. I have the ability to weave different modalities together to find what works best for each individual. I can provide talk therapy as well as therapy for anxiety, depression, PTSD, and other mental health issues. We can take therapy wherever you need it to go.
Something to know about me is that I love to learn. If I have a client with an issue that I don't know much about, I do what is necessary to learn more. I am also constantly learning more about myself. Recently, I discovered that I'm an emotional empath. What new things can we discover together about you?

Some of my heroes in the mental health field are Dr. Gabor Mate, Bessel van der Kolk, MD, Dr. Stephen Porges, and Steven Hayes, PhD. They have taught me a great deal about how trauma affects the brain and body, that we are wired for connection/what happens when connections we need are unstable, how to regain a sense of safety internally, and how to accept where we are instead of fighting it.

The treatment type that I like to use is the treatment type that works best for the client. There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to therapy. It has been proven that the modality of therapy does not matter as much as the relationship between the therapist and client. My main concern will be keeping the therapeutic alliance strong. If you are my client, I'm in your corner 100 percent.
