Through our lives, we have experiences which impact who we are and our world view. It is only when those experiences are negative that we are challenged to use our strengths and find out just how resilient we are. The only guarantee through life is that as we experience it, we change, how we change is up to us. Together, we can work to realize and use your strengths to help you become the person you would like to be.
I have 20+ years of experience working with individuals and families impacted by trauma and addiction. Some of the areas I have had the privilege of working with are:
- sex/pornography addiction
- sexual assault
- domestic violence
- child abuse
Couples and family systems are often impacted by what appears to be a single event. Along with trauma, I also work with issues such as:
I hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW), am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), and am a Certified Sex Addictions Therapist - Candidate (CSAT-C). My goal is to provide you with a supportive and nonjudgmental place to heal while respecting you as the expert about yourself. I utilize cognitive behavioral, rational emotive, and solution focused therapies. All of which respect the strength of the individual while challenging the negative cognitions that often prevent forward progression toward healthy living.
I am a believer that, when in the midst of chaos, one must learn to relax, focus, and oftentimes just breathe. Life takes us on some wild rides and the purpose of reaching out for help should be about finding and remembering who we are, where we want to go, and rediscovering the joy in life.
