About

I find it important to meet people where they are in life. Taking the steps towards healing and change is not easy. Exploring values and identifying barriers gives a path towards the things you may want in life. My favorite question to ask is “What do YOU want?”, followed by my second which is “What are YOU doing to get there?” With those two questions you and I are able to explore the road you are on and make changes that contribute to you obtaining the things that are the most important.
As a therapist I am a believer in utilizing a diverse use of tools to tackle the things in life that are the most difficult. My approach is collaborative, but also challenges you to feel empowered, confident, and willing to face fears that have been difficult.
My set of tools includes the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Reality Therapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness. Utilizing those approaches I integrate creative forms of interventions that are visual, insightful, and assist in seeing things through multiple lenses.
