I have worked in community mental health since 2012. I have a lot of experience working with most disorders in the DSM-5.

I work for a telehealth counseling clinic named Pain Alternatives. I became interested in mental wellness during my massage therapy years when seeing the mind-body connection as integral to healing. In my current practice, I use a time-limited dynamic psychotherapy model and medication prescription and management when clinically appropriate. You can come for medication management alone, for counseling alone, or for a combination of medication management with counseling sessions. My primary modalities are Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, and Mindfulness-Based Therapy.

In our work together, I'll help you explore your personal history so that you can achieve a deeper understanding of your current problems and achieve greater self-awareness. I believe our early experiences and traumas show up in our current lives and can manifest themselves in a myriad of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Therefore, I view therapy as a guide moving us towards the necessary clarity needed to live more purposely, thoughtfully, and with greater self-awareness.

Do you feel like you can't quit thinking about painful things that happened to you? Do you wish you could be more like the "you" before the trauma happened? Trauma can make you feel lonely and afraid. You can feel torn between wanting to talk about what happened versus keeping it all locked inside. I know it's hard to take that first step to get help, but once you start to talk about it with someone who knows how to help you heal, you can begin to work to reclaim the life you feel you lost.

Counseling can offer an understanding of the behaviors, beliefs and emotions that fuel our daily interactions with families and other people. Therapy is a process. My job is to facilitate you through possible change options. It is my goal to work with you closely during therapy to aid in clarifying your goals for treatment, explore patterns and choices of communication, relationships, life style and foster development of beneficial coping strategies with commitment on both parts during therapy. The main goal is to explore patterns of behavior, thoughts, and actions to foster positive change and personal growth.

As a provider coming from clinical work in community and institutional settings, I have had the privilege of working alongside a wide array of individuals. Provided this spectrum and my previous research efforts, my approach has become a constellation of theoretical orientations. I believe firmly in strengths-based counseling, as we know mental health symptomology, disturbances, or addiction of all kinds are nothing but survival skills, however maladaptive. Inherently, working together to identify and address paths to personal peace requires commitment to authenticity and personal awareness; healing is your process. I am only a facilitator of your self-knowledge.
