My Approach

My focus of therapy stems from a person-centered approach which means I put the client needs in mind first. I strive to create a comfortable atmosphere where you feel safe and comfortable while working to build a positive, open, trusting, therapeutic relationship. From this, I see the client as an expert in their own life, while striving to understand one’s unique perspective of the world around them. I aim to keep your needs in mind, through a non-judgmental attitude and unconditional positive regard toward your growth and challenges, with a focus on personal strengths and growth enhancement. Together, we take a holistic look at your life, by examining each part of your world that has an influence on your well-being whether it be personal relationships with family and friends, work, or health. I believe that people have the power to create changes in their lives no matter how small and am there to support you along the way.

My Background

With a background in healthcare and a special focus to direct client care, my clinical training and experience includes both social service and mental health degrees. Additional training and education in Traumatology, Sandtray therapy, Grief and Loss, Shame, and Body Image add to my skills as a provider. During extensive training as a Quality Mental Health Practitioner, I have worked with a broad range of mental health challenges including anxiety and depression, addiction, self-harm and suicidal ideation. In addition, as a woman centered provider, I continue to refine and improve my clinical skills through continued education and training by recently receiving my certification in pregnancy loss and as I currently work toward certification in Maternal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International.
