I specialize in the neurological response to multiple traumatic events. My training, both academic and visceral experiences, have all contributed in creating a therapeutic approach that values empowerment, self-direction, confidentiality, a non-judgmental atmosphere, emotional safety, validation, dignity, and respect. These components are necessary to create an environment conducive for healing. When both the client and the therapist are willing to work in collaboration towards achieving their therapeutic goals, great strides can be made in the recovery process. These concepts are the foundation of my practice.

I am trained as a Certified Trauma Professional, in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)/Advanced DBT, Cognitively Behavioral Therapy, Empowerment Model, Strength Based Perspective, Seven Challenges, Addictive Illnesses, Exposure to Violence, Stages of Change, Motivational Interviewing, Forensic Screening, Containment Theory, and Clinical Supervision.

It is the primary purpose of The Pleasants Group PLLC to treat our clients in the same way in which we want for ourselves, our children, our family members, or loved ones treated, with kindness, dignity, and respect. We highly value diversity and hold self direction sacred. It was my dream to create a safe place to heal, one that I would want to utilize.
