Experienced clinician with a decorated history of working in the mental health industry. Skilled in: Emotion focused psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, crisis intervention, conflict resolution, behavioral interventions, and mentoring. Plus additional certification in EMDR and DBT.

Certified Social Worker experienced in treating: depression, anxiety, trauma, mood disorders, addiction/substance use disorders, behavioral problems, existential crises, faith transition, codependency, and familial dysfunction.

As a social worker I have a diverse background. I have an extensive history working in settings with at-risk youth, people who struggle with substance abuse problems, and school settings. Often drawing from Buddhist, Taoist, and Stoic philosophy I embrace clients in their struggle. I walk their path beside them to assist and advocate for them in their healing journey. Warm, genuine, and authentic, I believe that meeting clients where they are at and building the “therapeutic alliance” is one of the key components to lasting change. I seek to understand what you are going through and to work toward therapy goals collaboratively.
Using a client-centered perspective I seek to understand, build a trusting relationship, and work toward implementation of therapeutic interventions to assist in making life better. I use an eclectic therapeutic style often drawing from various types of therapies such as Humanistic Psychotherapy, CBT, DBT, EMDR, SFBT, and Emotion-Focused Psychotherapies.
Life is difficult sometimes and can feel overwhelming, lonely, or sad. I have felt that way as well during parts of my life. Grief, loss, addiction, and trauma are all part of my story. I have had great allies to help weather the storm. I would like to work with you or your loved ones to help weather life's emotional storms. Not just as a therapist, an ally.
