Throughout various stages of our lives, we have all needed some level of support. Having someone to talk to and genuinely listen is essential to navigating the uncertainties we all face in life. My clients would say that I am down-to-earth, non-judgmental, authentic, and compassionate. I do not take lightly the fact that you’re entrusting me to come into your safe space.
While I have worked with a wide range of clients in various clinical settings, I’ve found my passions and training have aligned in specific areas. I currently work with couples and individuals. I especially enjoy working with those within the LGBTQI+ community. My ideal client is motivated and ready to make changes in their life, those seeking to live a more authentic life, and people who feel “stuck.” I am passionate about working with those who have experienced trauma/PTSD and want to work through its effect on their lives. I enjoy helping clients identify and break negative thought patterns and core beliefs.
My couple’s work focuses on learning healthier communication patterns, conflict resolution skills, working through possible barriers, and reconnecting emotionally. Couples therapy is not just about dealing with issues; it is also an excellent place to learn skills to prevent future relationship problems.
I received my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2016, and I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (License #12884). I am trained and completing full certification in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. Additionally, I am trained in Gottman Couples Therapy, currently Level I and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
