I have provided counseling in a wide range of settings including schools, group homes, and agencies. I have over seven years of experience in the child welfare system working with children, adults, and families involved in foster care. In working with clients heavily impacted by trauma, I have had the opportunity to treat a vast array of mental health conditions including but not limited to Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), attachment problems, adjustment disorders, behavior/conduct problems, anger/aggression, ADHD, anxiety, depression, self-injury, interpersonal problems, and grief/bereavement.
I practice from research-driven theoretical models including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, Attachment Self-Regulation Competency (ARC), Theraplay, and Aggression Replacement Training (ART). I also enjoy providing education and support to parents in need of assistance attuning to their children's emotional needs and managing difficult behavior.
As consented to by client, I will facilitate communication with family members, schools, and any other individuals/systems that can be supportive of the client's therapeutic progress. I have been greatly impacted and inspired by my clients, many of whom have been able to overcome significant barriers in life.
