Hi there! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate who provides counseling to individual clients. Beginning to look for a new counselor is never an easy process, so thank you for considering me! If you have any questions about whether I may be a fit, please reach out via email or phone.
I utilize an integrated model of counseling consisting of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Existential Therapy, and Attachment Theory. This means that I look at how your brain understands what is happening right now, and how life experiences over time contributed to the way your brain understands and reacts to the world. Each of our brains are unique, and I love helping people gain mastery over their inner experiences through this approach.
I have training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, trauma-informed care and best practices, Attachment Theory, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. To begin the process of counseling, you and I will establish goals for our work together, and I will form a fluid treatment plan, which may change as our counseling progresses. I have found counseling to be most effective if we work collaboratively; I expect you to come to your sessions on time, and to do your best to talk about the concerns, behaviors, thoughts, and feelings that are bothering you. I see you as the expert of your life, which means that I see my role as that of a guide to walk alongside you instead of telling you where to go. Through this process I will provide you with tools and skills to manage and improve your mental health, and I will help you practice using them in a way that works for you.
