I am passionate about working with clients who are impacted by substance use and mood disorders. I believe in taking a holistic approach to counseling. Understanding how the mind and body work together to impact physical and mental health as part of recovery, is a key component of the work I do with clients. As well as, identifying how our thoughts impact our feelings and behaviors. I believe in collaborating with clients on their recovery journey in order to help you discover your best self.

I have been working with individuals of all ages since 2014 and adults with substance use and serious and persistent mental health issues since 2017.
My Personality: Bold, honest, empathetic, compassionate, articulate, and nerdy. Most of the folks I work with have been dealing with issues for a long time and either starting to want to change or see that they need a change to happen to be where and who they want to be! Nothing is too big or too small to be handled together – trauma, abuse, toxic relationships, harmful coping skills, conflicts at work, self-doubt/growth, and personality disorders. My job is to help you explore where these issues are coming from, what has worked in the past, and what will help you become a new “whole” person in the future.

Making impactful, long-lasting change can be difficult. Draining mental health symptoms, substance use , and trauma can contribute to making positive lasting change feel like an impossible and daunting task. I understand the importance of wanting to find that immediate relief, as well as identifying and treating the root of the problem. An essential part of our work is exploring the past and making connections between the past and present. I enjoy getting to know my clients as individuals, assisting them in their journey of learning about themselves, and helping them learn the skills they need to live a more meaningful life.

Many people with substance use issues also suffer from trauma. Feelings of anxiety, fear, anger, grief, depression, loneliness, feeling judged, and misunderstood are very normal. You may not trust the world around you and may not know how to cope with symptoms of trauma alone and will instead seek to numb your emotional turmoil. Both are lonely and isolating issues. Substance use is an outward manifestation of your pain and with supportive trauma and substance use counseling combined, your addiction can be treated as well as the underline symptoms that cause the need to numb your emotions and avoid your reality.

For me, the first and most important thing I can possibly know about you is how you want to feel at the very end of our therapeutic relationship. You might wonder why that is so important to me, and the answer is as simple and complex as this: When you tell me where you want to go, I will invest energy and resources during our time together to make sure that we are moving towards that goal in each and every session. While we address your challenges, I will help you discover your strengths and dig in to find resources that you already have in your life. When you meet your goal, that's when I know I've done my best.

What type of Milwaukee 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Milwaukee?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
