About

In my approach, I work in partnership with teenagers and adolescents to help them reach the goals they have set for themselves. Often, this work includes healing from past negative experiences and traumas, support during developmental milestones and issues connected “stage of life” challenges. I have deep confidence in a person’s inherent knowledge of self, resilience and ability to heal and grow in order to be their whole self. I have experience working in the field of social work for over ten years, supporting individuals and communities in a variety of environments including the juvenile justice system, education and advocacy work, residential treatment, community-based work and non-profits. In my work I have developed a client-centered, strengths-based and trauma informed practice modality.
I focus on client-centered work partnering with you as a guide in order to collaborate and create an individualized counseling process that feels right to you. The treatment approach modalities that I integrate draw from EMDR, narrative therapy, and mindfulness practices (including MBSR-T) for emotional regulation.
There is an old saying that "if you are facing the right direction, all you have to do is keep walking". While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand life's circumstances and gain insight to resolve these challenges at a pace that feels right for you. A guiding belief that I hold in the work I do is that "nothing goes away until it teaches us what we need to know" (by Pema Chodron). I believe that each individual is the author of their future. I hope to work with you to help you write the story that is true for you.
