Has your child been acting out, uncommunicative, or withdrawn lately? Has their emotional well-being been affected by changes in their life? You are not alone. I have a deep passion for helping children find their voice, rather than acting out or withdrawing. For over 30 years I have worked with children of all ages as well as families and adults. As a therapist, I find it most rewarding when I help my clients breakthrough and grow from their trauma. I specialize in child therapy along with anxiety, depression, ADHD in all ages. Together we can achieve your goals at The Effective Therapy Group.
I create a safe place for clients taking that step to self-healing. I meet each individual where one is at. I believe in a team effort approach, therefore, together we create a treatment plan to fit each client’s needs. Utilizing evidence-based practices that are effectively helping the unbearable become bearable.
I have experience with the following: anxiety, coping skills, depression, family conflict, grief and loss, life's transition, relationship issues, and, trauma. Sometimes we need help, even if it’s just the moral support and encouragement to help one realize one can overcome one’s difficulties and persevere.
Conseguí un puesto de pasante con The Effective Therapy Group en 2015. Continúo adquiriendo experiencia trabajando con familias, individuos y niños con una variedad de necesidades. Disfruto trabajando con niños y adultos jóvenes con necesidades especiales. Entré en este campo con 30 años de experiencia como paraprofesional de educación especial en el sistema de escuelas públicas. Esto me ha permitido comprender mejor la dinámica familiar cuando el nivel de atención es de mayor necesidad debido a las capacidades de cada miembro. Actualmente estoy asistiendo a la Universidad de Capella para obtener una Maestría en Ciencias en Psicolo
Creo un lugar seguro para los clientes que dan ese paso hacia la autocuración. Me encuentro con cada individuo donde se encuentra uno. Creo en un enfoque de esfuerzo en equipo, por lo tanto, juntos creamos un plan de tratamiento que se ajuste a las necesidades de cada cliente. Utilizar prácticas basadas en evidencia que ayuden efectivamente a que lo insoport
Tengo experiencia en lo siguiente: ansiedad, habilidades de afrontamiento, depresión, conflicto familiar, dolor y pérdida, transición de la vida, problemas de relación y trauma. A veces necesitamos ayuda, incluso si es solo el apoyo moral y el aliento para ayudarnos a darse cuenta de que podemos superar las dificultades y perseverar.
