I am a trained Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been practicing since 2006 and have worked extensively with individuals and couples with a range of mental health concerns.
Areas of focus include:
- parenting issues
- substance abuse
- relationship issues
My theoretical approach is eclectic, pulling from a variety of theories that best suit the client and situation. I work from a client centered, humanistic approach, and use a variety of modalities in session. Some of these approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
I completed my Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner (SEP) certificate in 2017. Somatic Experiencing ® (SE), an approach developed by Dr. Peter Levine that focuses on regulating the autonomic nervous system, is successful in healing trauma and accumulated stress.
Incorporating a mindfulness approach with traditional Western psychotherapy helps me work with individuals on present awareness of their body and mind.
I provide a safe, calm, friendly, empathetic & down to earth environment for you in session. Making changes or gaining a better understanding about your life can be challenging. I will lend support to you whether you are experiencing a crisis, going through a transition in life or are interested in learning more about yourself & relationships. Together we can work on achieving your therapy goals.
Maybe you have sought therapy before or this is the first time, I am here to assist you with all of your therapy goals. No matter who you are and what you have experienced, we all can benefit from psychotherapy. Together we can explore more thoroughly who you are and the experiences you have had so that you might gain some insights and understanding. Change is possible with motivation. I will support you in changing unwanted behaviors that persist.
