I believe that the best therapy happens when there is a good working relationship between a clinician and a client. You will determine if that is present very quickly after our initial meeting. You will see that one of my priorities is to meet you where you're at in your stage of change. I will help you to identify change goals, barriers to change, tools and skills required to change and the best way in which to create change in your life. I put words to your own unique story that has shaped the way you see life. One of my favorite quotes is: "Owning our story is hard but not nearly as hard as running from it" (Brené Brown).
My education is specialized in both mental health and addiction and my career has focused on helping people with dual-diagnoses achieve stability, learn effective coping skills, and recognize triggers for symptoms of their conditions. I am also trained in EMDR method of trauma treatment and am able to address significant traumas with clients as well.
The process of participating in therapy can be one that you find surprising. You might discover things about yourself that you were unaware of or develop new understandings that you never had before. I look forward to meeting you and helping you find the answers you need to be able to reach your goals and feel satisfied with yourself.
