About My Clients
My clients have survived their worst!!!! And are trying to get to a place where they can move forward with their lives. Have you experienced something dramatic? Has it changed the person you felt you were? Does it feel like you are just "getting through" instead of "coming through"? I help my clients to recover from their trauma, manage depression and anxiety, and find how to achieve the balance they seek, while acknowledging what happened to them. If this is you, feel free to reach out!!
My Background and Approach
I am trauma trained and informed. I use a lot of techniques, so that you don't get a "one size fits all" approach. I like to tailor everything in our sessions to who you are, what you believe, and what you need. We will find out what works and what doesn't work. I am creative, innovative, and enthusiastic when it comes to helping you. I have training in a variety of models for treating trauma, and helping you get relief from your depression and anxiety. I use this training and knowledge, and bring it to you in a way that makes sense, and is easy to understand. I feel that your input is the best input, so my approach is more of a guide than a guru -- I won't be telling you what to do, but helping you to figure out what you can do. My clients call me straightforward, down to earth, open, easy to talk to, and often, they find they open up more with me, than they have with anyone in the past. My clients feel heard, seen, supported, and valued.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am an open person - open to whatever you believe, whatever lifestyle you choose, whatever faith you practice, and whatever approach you take to this world. I am not here to change who you are; if you feel things need to change about yourself, I will gladly support that!! I find that I am an individual who knows a little.. about a lot -- and I tend to lean more on the "unconventional" than conservative. I welcome each and every one of you, on your terms, and as you want to present yourself. As your therapist, it's not my place to judge your lifestyle, cause I certainly don't want to be judged on mine!!! I am aware of issues impacting BIPOC individuals, the LGBTQ+ family, those of varying religious perspectives, and those within non-traditional relationships. I am by no means an expert on your life - but you are!! Everyone is different in that two people of similar backgrounds can have two very different perspectives. And it's those differences I accept, respect, and honor.
