WHO I AM AS A COUNSELOR
I am passionate about personal and professional growth. As such, I practice what I preach and intentionally pursue holistic growth through relationships, self-care, personal therapy, goal-setting, professional development, and spirituality. I do not ask anything of my clients, that I would not be willing to engage in myself (likely I have already engaged in it!). I know therapy can be taxing and often ebbs and flows; but that is a necessary, thus worthwhile part of healing. I believe each person’s story can be transformed and that we are capable of rewriting our stories, thus living lives that are more congruent with our personalities, values, and beliefs.
I incorporate a variety of therapeutic approaches into my practice as a clinician, depending on client needs. I primarily draw from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Ego State Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR). My approach to therapy includes a past, present, and future lens. My theoretical framework includes a strong belief in self-efficacy, empowerment, self-awareness, responsibility and choice.
TYPES OF ISSUES/SPECIALTY AREAS
I have worked with all types of people in various life phases facing an assortment of issues. I enjoy working with people from all walks of life, as we each have a valuable and unique story, thus making each of our lives matter! My particular areas of expertise and passion are in the following arenas: infertility and infant loss, grief and loss, career counseling, anxiety, depression, adolescents, young adults, women’s issues, self-esteem, relationships and boundaries, and spirituality. I work well with multiculturally diverse clients, including LGBTQ+. I have also worked extensively with individuals struggling with self-harm and suicidal ideation.
$90/60-minute session. Medicaid insurance accepted. I can provide a detailed out of network claim (Superbill) for other insurance companies. I also accept HSA and FSA cards for payment.
