*NOW OFFERING HYPNOTHERAPY*
My passion is working with adolescents and young adults; what some would call Generation Z and the Millennials. I work to assist with creating stability within themselves to then work towards creating stability outside of themselves. I strive to provide a nurturing and safe atmosphere to develop rapport and develop goals to assist in becoming the best person they can be. I aim to explore their emotions, learn effective coping strategies, and make changes that push them toward healing and overall wellness. I aim to meet my clients where they are, increase awareness of their emotional and cognitive experiences/behaviors, and provide guidance towards their goals; sometimes with gentle and caring confrontation. Some things are outside of our awareness; I believe once something is brought to your awareness, you can adapt and change as needed to manifest the emotional responses, behaviors, and thoughts that you want.
I am an Associate Professional Counselor (APC) with training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I have utilized that training in outpatient, inpatient, and in residential settings with individuals starting from the age 4 and up. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, chronic suicidal behavior or thoughts, behavioral difficulties, self-esteem, self-injurious behavior, socialization issues, school issues, and personality disorders. I also have experience working with families. The family system is very important to individual functionality in the world.
I utilize creative and expressive interventions to assist clients in identifying goals, exploring emotions, creating a personalized array of skills to keep at their disposal, and creating their own safe space to tackle the world with. Even though the journey or road may be difficult, I am confident that I can get you to the other side feeling accomplished and empowered. I look forward to working with you on your journey to becoming your best self.
