I understand how difficult it is to ask for help and how painful it could be to talk about things that are not working with a stranger. I feel honored every time my client opens up to me. I treat my clients with respect, kindness, and warmth. In my experience, therapeutic relationship is the foundation of the healing process and I work very hard to help my clients feel heard, understood, supported, and safe in my office.
I use different therapeutic approaches in my work, however, main ones are Internal Family Systems (IFS) and mind-body based, As of February 2017, I DO NOT ACCEPT NEW INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS. In May - August 2020, Jenn Davis, a Master's Student in Counseling from Antioch University is providing brief low cost therapy to trauma survivors under my supervision.
I also offer SUPERVISION to the professionals working towards the following licenses: LPC, LPC-MHSP, Psychologist & HSP. I subscribe to the developmental model of supervision, and work with a professional collaboratively on reaching their goals, while maintaining safe and high quality patient care. Accepting new supervisees now.
