My passion is working with clients age 13-18 as well as young & early adults. I love to work to empower clients, build insight, heal relationships & provide practical tools for clients to use as they develop into young adulthood. I use family therapy for family system work. My other client focus is on victims of sexual exploitation including victims of Human Trafficking & sexual abuse. I incorporate the dynamics of race & ethnicity into my practice and like to work with people from these marginalized populations & addressing how these factors impact treatment and resilience. My ideal client is motivated and committed to treatment.
I use DBT, CBT, Systems Theory, & Family Systems into my practice. I'm experienced treating depression, anxiety, victims of crimes, human sex trafficking, abuse, vulnerable adults, & treating self-esteem, and bullying issues. I work with individuals, groups, families & couples. My practice is evidenced based & trauma focused using virtual & in-person work.
My life experience as a single mother & student who achieved her PhD-informs my practice. I have worked in law enforcement, enjoy program development & currently teach MSW students at Walden. If you are ready to have a therapist who understands your struggles and has the tools, supports and skills to help you manage and improve, please reach out.
