My passion is working with clients between 13-18 as well as young and early adults. I love to work to empower clients, build insight, heal relationships and provide practical tools for clients to use as they develop into young adulthood. My other client focus is on victims of sexual exploitation including victims of Human Trafficking and sexual abuse. I incorporate the dynamics of race and ethnicity into my practice and like to work with people from these marginalized populations addressing how these factors impact treatment and resilience. My ideal client is motivated and committed to treatment.

Looking for clarity, struggling with substance use, fighting with depression and anxiety, or any other mental health issues. I can assist. I help my clients in navigating the stressors of their individual lives. I identify the different values and ideologies of all my clients. Together we map a situation and figure out a solution that is in line with their personal desires so they are able to reach goals set. The three theories I use most in my practice are humanistic/self-determination, behaviorism and psychodynamic theory. With humanistic/self-determination theory I can ensure I help my clients achieve their highest potential.

Life in general, can be challenging. I believe in the healing power of telling your story in a judgement-free environment where you feel safe. Research consistently shows it is the quality of the therapeutic relationship, more than any other factor including the method of therapy, predicting the clients’ ability to use therapy to help themselves and make positive life changes. Therapy does not always solve the problems brought to it, but the best chance for success is when there is a strong therapeutic relationship. To me, the critical foundation of our counseling relationship is a partnership based on mutual respect and honesty.

Life is hard, people are imperfect, and circumstances oftentimes just don't seem fair. Many of my clients describe having undergone a significant trauma or series of difficult events in their lives. This tends to create feelings of worthlessness and defectiveness, even despair. They may blame themselves and try to push down their thoughts, feelings, and memories and focus on other things. They may even try to reinvent (or perfect) themselves, but somehow end up reenacting their old struggles in a way that seems to be self-sabotaging. There is often chronic fearfulness as well as sadness and emptiness.

There is a way to make sense of it all and emerge stronger and centered, both as an individual and a unit.
