Whatever you are searching for; I am willing to be a part of your search team to help you locate your confidence, peace, happiness, and understanding. I have helped families work through years of hardships and unfortunate circumstances and find healthy ways to interact with one another and develop boundaries that are safe and meaningful.
I have been working in the mental health field for 15 years. I am credentialed as a CSW. I am certified in Trauma-focused CBT and Grief-Loss CBT. I have worked and treated individuals from ages 5-65 with anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance abuse, domestic violence survivors, abandonment issues, low self-esteem and self-worth struggles.
Counseling is not the ceiling for self development but apart of the standard. There is room for joy and fun in developing your best self.

I work with clients who may be struggling with anxiety, grief and loss and trauma related issues that are impacting their relationships and family. During initial sessions, we will identify underlying issues at hand, brainstorm and collaborate to create a plan to address issues. Most clients experience a gradual lifting of symptoms within the 1st month amd sustained improvement thereafter.

I like to use solution-focused, DBT and trauma informed care in my therapy sessions. With DBT we will explore how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate your emotions and improve relationships with others. With trauma informed care, it is centered on an understanding and responsiveness to the impact of trauma.
