My primary experience has been with members of the LGBTQIA + community, specifically with individuals navigating their intersectionality including transgender individuals seeking a referral for physical care/treatment.
Every person's journey through life is unique and will inevitably bring about challenging situations, particularly when we feel alone or lost in what we are facing. As your therapist, my goal is to provide you with a trusting and warm environment, to allow you to explore and gain understanding of the challenges you face, as well as the possibilities that may create a positive change. I utilize person-centered and integrated approaches in therapy to address the dynamics of your inner life and commit to supporting your emotional growth, which allows me to create a therapeutic experience that's unique to each client.

I enjoy working with young adults (or older) dealing with life challenges including: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, LGBTQIA + and gender issues, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, current or past trauma, grief, self-compassion, and being an overall great advocate for yourself whether that be in your work, home, or in relationships.
As a therapist, I want to empower my clients to be the best version of themselves, while also showing love and compassion for their flaws, because hey, we're all human! I utilize Cognitive-Behavior Therapy approaches, including Person-centered, Solution-Focused, Mindfulness, and Strength Based modalities. I like to use creative tools to help aide the treatment process, such as art, music, and writing.

I have experience with the LGBTQ and Latinx communities.
I believe that mental health issues arise when we are faced with overwhelming emotions in isolation. Without the necessary support, emotions get so big and daunting that we defend ourselves against them, leading to numbness, anxiety, and depression. My goal is to invite intense emotions into the room so that we can learn to regulate them together and they can be reincorporated into the psyche, leading to a fuller and healthier life.

I enjoy working with those who identify as sexual minorities including LGBTQ +.
When I decided to pursue a career as a therapist I did so because I wanted to make the world a better place, and decided to do that by helping one person at a time . My primary approach to mental health counseling is the Person -Centered approach . This means I believe that no one knows you better than you know yourself. It is my job to help you identify goals , improve communication , strengthen self-esteem and develop solutions and coping skills. During the counseling process you are in the driver's seat, I am just a GPS to help you on the road to better mental health. However, I'm not closed to other counseling approaches.

My approach to therapy is both focused on finding solutions and gaining understanding. First, I believe it is important to incorporate effective coping skills to mitigate the effects of any mental health concern. It is then often necessary to build insight as to the causes of these concerns in order to change problematic patterns in how we relate to ourselves and others. Anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship matters - I attempt to foster self-compassion and understanding in order to lighten the burden of difficult life situations.

You're wanting to feel alive and comfortable in your own skin, but you find yourself freezing up or overwhelmed with images from the past or stuck in ways you can't explain. While talking about it can be helpful, if you're dealing with a trauma or ingrained stress response, it gets stuck in the body and talking alone doesn't unlock the trauma patterns in the body. Body-based modalities combined with talking really help to unwind trauma patterns. If you come see me, we won't only sit in chairs talking.

NO CALLS PLEASE The majority of my clients come from this website, colleagues, and referrals from current or former clients. Nothing motivates like pain. Painful experiences change what we believe about ourselves, others, and the world around us. These beliefs act as catalysts for the choices we make (past and present). When our choices (or our reactions to those of others) cause pain; the pain motivates us to change. We can't change other people, but we can change ourselves. When we change, a ripple effect occurs resulting in outcomes we never expected much less imagined.

What type of Kettering mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. 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 Kettering?
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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
