My Approach

My philosophy in regards to counseling is that each person has a story to tell, with innate abilities to heal from their issues and traumas. My position as a therapist is to help clients in their treatment process by building upon those abilities. A strong rapport with the client is very important and I integrate many theoretical orientations in my work, such as: existential and humanistic techniques that focus on client centered care and the universal themes that we as humans are forced to confront throughout our lives. I also have experience using the Strategic Family Therapy model when working with adolescents. Overall, I view counseling as a collaborative journey that promotes healing and growth.

My Background

My experience in the mental health field has varied over the past few years. I began as a Residential Counselor for clients with serious and persistent mental illness, and later on as a Group Counselor for an adolescent inpatient rehab and mental health treatment center. My internship in graduate school took place at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility, where I counseled individuals and groups for a year and a half. During my internship, I facilitated several grief and loss groups, as well as DHS support. I've also worked as a therapist for a non-profit agency, counseling adolescents and their families at a middle school. I utilize many theoretical models and have specialized training in addictions treatment.
