About

I help change the world by creating more agents of love. Trauma and loss interfere with our ability to love. I direct the client's attention to areas of their lives where they are experiencing the most distress and offer a safe space for the client to identify, understand, and let go of the beliefs and patterns of behavior that no longer serve them. By healing trauma, we are free to give and receive love. At The Safe Space, we help each other understand our pasts so we can identify and change patterns of behavior no longer serving us. Our goal will be to make reflection a cherished hobby.
I have been able to help clients in the areas of crisis intervention, anger management, suicide ideation/attempt, impulse control, irrational thinking, anxiety, emotional regulation, interpersonal communication, trauma, psychosis, drug and alcohol use, DCPP and probation, stress management, family/spouse conflict, and life goals.
Expect to: Listen to your own self-talk, Make connections between current behaviors and broader patterns, Discuss and accept the anxiety that comes with change, Practice noticing the positive aspects of life, Take action and analyze results, Define your values and identity, Gain self-awareness and flexibility, and learn how to make authentic choices.
