Life is hard and sometimes you just want someone to listen and validate your experience. If you’ve experienced general trauma, racial or religious trauma, relationship trouble, low self-esteem/confidence/concept, or are in the middle of life transitions I provide a safe place for you to be heard and explore your internal world; a place to start healing from the hurts of life.
I enjoy teaching my clients about trauma, unhelpful and helpful thought patterns and managing emotions to improve overall well-being. I offer Progressive Counting to help with unresolved trauma, I also use Internal Family Systems, dialectical behavioral and cognitive behavioral therapies to help my clients understand their internal world, thoughts and emotions. My clients are challenged to move beyond their comfort zone to create the change and life they desire.
My Professional Background
I’ve worked with Christians, the racially traumatized, veterans, foster parents, foster children, parents involved with CPS, persons with an addiction, and seniors with serious mental illness; I’ve worked in outpatient settings, inpatient/ residential settings and private practice settings.
