I have had the privilege to work in multiple clinical settings before moving into private practice. I felt that this was much like mental health bootcamp and I found it highly beneficial. Through these experiences I was able to determine the areas of mental health that I am best suited to. In my practice I focus on Complex Post Traumatic Stress due to a variety of abusive experiences such as narcissistic, sexual, emotional, mental, and physical abuse. I also work with co-occurring disorders such as addiction and; bi-polar disorder, anxiety, and depression. I work with individuals, couples, teens and families.
My approach is always based in compassion, research based (CBT, DBT, EMDR) with a good dose of honesty. like to use an integrative approach that is specifically structure for each individual. I use a combination of theories and techniques, but most importantly my approach is non-judgmental, accepting and positive.
I believe a productive relationship between counselor and client must include open and honest communication. To create an environment for that type of communication I provide my client a safe place for them to express their thoughts and feelings without judgment. I believe in listening intently in order that I may help my clients find clarity and healing.
