Going to counseling is a big and challenging step. The next stage is finding the right fit for yourself and one who can best address your issues. As a pervious staff member at Peachford and Emory Hospitals, my training focuses on trauma, difficult life transitions, anxiety, ADHD, trauma, grief and loss, and depression. My goal is to serve those in need, who desire healing. I specialize in adolescents and college age (along with their families and young adults) to uncover core reasons why individuals are in a pattern of self-harming behavior, suicidal ideation, high anxiety, and who are facing divorce, alienation, separation.
I also have an art degree with skilled training in drawing, painting, puppet play therapy, sand tray therapy, and EMDR. During the healing journey, I believe in focusing on several complementary modalities, such as Art Expression, DBT, Experiential, and Emotional-Focused Therapy. EMDR is an excellent choice to assist with hurtful and daunting memories.
I enjoy a challenge and believe, “There is a solutions to all problems.” Everyone in life has a story to be told. I embrace all of Erikson’s life stages and enjoy being a life coach — to provide supportive options for whatever life throws you, while forming an authentic, lifetime, and therapeutic relationship. I have served with Pet Therapy since 1996.
