My experience ranges from working with individuals with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, crisis and family conflict. I trained in EMDR.
As a therapist, I enjoy being able to help people of various ages, genders, sexual orientations, and cultural backgrounds navigate through life and help them to move closer to their own ideals. Mental health is indeed a lifelong journey and it is not my intention to “fix” anyone. I strive to work with the individual to determine where they are at in life in relation to their own perceptions of mental health. I am collaborative and together we will work towards mutually agreed upon goals in therapy.
I have worked alongside both adults and youth in a multitude of mental health settings, including community based settings. I have had the opportunity to work at a Crisis Stabilization Unit has which has provided experience in helping individuals and their families to grow and progress through extremely difficult situations.
I have had the opportunity to work in educational settings as well as in adult outpatient programs. No matter the setting or the population. I always am appreciative to be a part of people taking the first step towards achieving a positive change for themselves. My experience ranges from working with individuals with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, trauma, crisis and family conflict. I also have training in EMDR to provide treatment to individuals processing trauma.
