I use an integrated approach to therapy which may include trauma-informed techniques from various counseling approaches, including (but not limited to), Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Therapy, Polyvagal Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Internal Family Systems, Positive Psychology, and Humanistic Psychology.
My empathetic approach meets the individual where they are, to explore their concerns without shame, guilt, or judgment. Everyone faces challenges and difficult times in their life. The way we receive information from the people, places, and things in our environment is rooted in experience, belief systems, and our personality. We respond and interact with others based on our defined relationship with ourselves and our experiences. My goal is to create a safe environment, to cultivate an authentic relationship with yourself. We will work together to develop attainable treatment goals based on your needs and wants.

"I am a firm believer in finding balance between feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and actions. Sometimes what we are dealing with is simply present day stress, needing a safe environment to process and get feedback. Other times events from our past dictate our reactions to today's experiences. This leads to giving our power away and continuing to suffer. I practice cognitive behavioral therapy, as well as other approaches when indicated, always focusing on the client's goals. I am focused on respectful approaches to teaching tools that allow each client's efforts to result in positive impacts throughout their lives."

You appear to have all your shit together on the outside, but you are a mess on the inside. You don’t tell how you really feel for fear of judgment. You continue wearing the mask of perfection and you are exhausted. You ask yourself, "What am I doing wrong? Why is my best never good enough?" You want to believe God has a plan for you, but you're not even sure you believe in God anymore. I assure you, it is no just you. This struggle is real for EveryBody. “After years in "the struggle," I know there is hope, but you can’t find it on your own. I look forward to hearing from you about ways I can help.
