I have experience working with children and adolescents with anger management, autism, learning disabilities, and behavioral issues.
I have a special interest in working with clients with the following issues: developmental disabilities, self-esteem, wellness, depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, life transitions, daily living, and stress-management. I have an interest with helping children and adolescents with adjustment disorders and behavioral matters (i.e. anger management and ADHD). My counseling approach is around using a holistic approach to therapy and primarily rely on cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, as well as having a solution-focused orientation.

Whether your goal is self-improvement or learning to be a more supportive and empathic parent, colleague, friend, or romantic partner, I can help you develop an increased understanding of the issues that are common among neurodivergent people.
I am autistic, and a neurodiversity-affirming professional. This means I do not seek to change others, but focus on strength and adaptation, not assimilation. We can dig into life's fundamental questions: Who am I, what do I want, why am I here, and who should journey with me? I am not a therapist, but instead, I specialize in consulting and coaching those who want to develop healthier relationships with themselves and others. Our work together might focus on recovering from past mistakes, understanding how we came to those mistakes, and learning to make different choices and decisions in the future. It might be learning to say no.

We believe the role of the therapist is to be there as a guide in the process of helping you trust your inner self more and assist in learning new coping strategies to better manage the adversities in life.
Therapy is a journey of healing, growth, self discovery and so much more. Each person brings with them a different story and unique perspective, which gives us the opportunity to meet you where you are in that moment, with empathy and support. At Steps to Change, LLC we frequently work with people around life transitions, anxiety, depression, gender and sexuality, acute and chronic trauma issues, self empowerment, parenting, chronic illness (invisible and visible) as well as grief and loss. We enjoy working with individuals in a welcoming space that was created together through the therapeutic relationship.

Mental and behavioral health are as important as physical health, especially for children and teens. More than ever our children need resiliency and good, adaptive coping strategies as well as access to prompt, high-quality treatment for common conditions like anxiety, depression, or ADHD. To increase access to services, I will now offer cognitive-behavioral therapy groups for children with depression and anxiety and parent groups for families impacted by ADHD. Groups size will be kept small. The CBT treatment will follow an established approach for 10 weeks (in person).

My approach to counseling invites individuals into a warm, nonjudgmental space where they can explore challenges in their lives. I aspire to offer a safe space for individuals to be vulnerable and their authentic selves by practicing empathy, compassion, and support. I believe that individuals are able to make transformative steps in their life when they are motivated to change and offered a healthy and supportive environment to open up in. My client focus is on women with sexual trauma, relationship issues, and intimacy and sexual struggles. I work with adolescents 8-17 years old, adults, and couples.

What type of Salem 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 Salem?
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.
