My Approach

My focus of therapy stems from a Person-Centered approach which means I put the client needs in mind first. My goal is to create an atmosphere where you feel safe and comfortable while working to build a positive, open, trusting, therapeutic relationship. It is through this therapeutic relationship that I see you as the expert in your own life, while I strive to understand your personal perspective of the world around you. Throughout therapy, 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, Birth Trauma 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, and self-harm. As a Woman Centered provider, I continue to refine and improve my clinical skills through continued education and training by receiving certification in Perinatal Loss and Adoptive & Foster Family Therapy, as well as, completing training in Maternal Mental Health as I currently work toward certification in Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International.
