"The way out is through" - Robert Frost. As human beings navigating this complex world, we often avoid problems as a form of self-protection. In order to find more contentment in our lives, it is essential that we face our difficulties in a safe environment. I enjoy working with adults struggling with self-esteem, addictive behaviors, self-care, life-transitions, childhood trauma, parenting/step-parenting, relationship issues and more. I utilize an empathetic, genuine and kind approach in session creating a safe space for people to work through and explore their difficulties.

I am a licensed social worker with almost a decade of experience in various mental and chemical health settings. One of my core beliefs about therapy is that people are separate from their problems. I believe the therapeutic relationship should be collaborative, and characterized by hope, optimism, possibility, and a spirit of adventure. I understand the importance of feeling heard, seen and understood. I provide a space for people to talk honestly about their lives and difficulties with hope of obtaining a fresh perspective.

I love DBT and I continue to be amazed at how it can help clients transform their lives. I strive to make groups and individual sessions fun and accessible. My approach to therapy is non-judgmental, direct, compassionate, and trauma-informed. I meet clients where they are and help them define and build a life worth living. I believe we are all good people doing the best we can, but sometimes we are driven more by emotions and behaviors than our values and goals. Together, we work toward identifying and overcoming old habits and coping strategies and develop new, more helpful ones.

Relationships can be messy and sometimes lead to emotional, mental and behavioral issues. At the same time, relationships can also be a source of healing which is why a therapeutic relationship can help in overcoming these difficulties. I have extensive experience working with individuals (both adolescent and adult) and assisting couples and families with relational conflicts. I enjoy helping others gain insight to the causes of their struggles and empowering them to learn to cope with, accept and work through life struggles that would otherwise seem overwhelming and out of their control.

It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Apple Valley?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
