I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Behavioral Specialist.
As a clinician, I aim to hold a safe, non-judgmental space to help others heal and make meaningful changes for themselves. I strive to be authentic, open-minded, empathetic, competent, and resourceful for my clients.
If you are struggling or interested in exploring your life, releasing emotions, discarding limiting beliefs and habits, and realigning with your purpose… this may be an excellent avenue. I am here to listen and assist you in building up understanding and skills to be at ease with past events and conquer current obstacles.
I have been in the mental health field since 2010 and an outpatient counselor since 2016. I enjoy updating the latest evidence-based therapeutic interventions, research, and strategies. I have experience working with various populations, backgrounds, socioeconomic statuses, and cultures in the outpatient counseling setting. I have experience with various mental health concerns, such as:
-anxiety and being overwhelmed
-depression, sadness, and moving through changes
-Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and complex PTSD
-bipolar disorder and other emotional regulation difficulties and skill-building
-grief/loss bereavement, existential and clarifying purpose and meaning
-relationship conflicts and building healthy relationships
-self-esteem, self-efficacy, and empowerment
-codependency, boundaries, and difficulties saying “no.”
-stress management, mindfulness, and relaxation techniques
My therapeutic style is a mix of client-centered, trauma-informed, and cognitive-behavioral (CBT). I utilize techniques from a variety of other therapeutic modalities as well, including but not limited to Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Attachment Theory, Strengths-Based and Creative therapies (art, music, literature, forest, etc.). I aim to empower others to recognize their strengths, capabilities, and resiliency despite suffering, struggle, or diagnosis.
I enjoy reading, learning new things, listening to podcasts, nature, hiking, sightseeing, and yoga in my free time. I am interested in nutritional psychology, eastern philosophy, natural living, holistic health, and herbal remedies.
I love the arts, including music, guitar, photography, drawing, painting, poetry, and dance. I adore the time I get to spend alone in contemplation, as well as the time I get to spend with loved ones going on adventures. If it seems like I may be a good fit for you, let’s get started on this journey together!
