About My Clients
My ideal client is someone who is ready to heal. You are not broken and can't be fixed. You are most likely wounded and need to heal. If you are tired of feeling the way you do and want to heal, I want to help you with that. I meet everyone where they are at to help them be the person they want to be. I specialize in addictions and trauma. I also work with people on anxiety, depression, co-dependency, and much more. :)
My Background and Approach
I grew up in a dysfunctional, abusive, neglectful family. I had complex PTSD from a young age. This caused many struggles in my own life until I found recovery and the right therapy. I was able to heal with the right help and dedicated myself to helping others with the kind of help that was given to me. I meet everyone where they are at to help them be the person they want to be. I don't have an agenda except to help you heal. I worked in community mental health for 5 years where I gained valuable experience working with people from all backgrounds. I have worked extensively with people in the LGBTQ+ community and welcome all people with open arms. I utilize all kinds of therapeutic interventions although my specialty is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for healing trauma. I offer free in-person/online/phone consultations so you can see if I am the one you want to work with.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe most people do the best with the skills, tools, and knowledge they have. I am here to help people gain new skills, tools, and knowledge so they can make positive changes in their lives. Through my own therapy I learned how I did the best I could, but I didn't have the necessary things to help myself. My life has blossomed so greatly that I want to help others feel the same. I am very active in social justice. If you are against this, we will not be a good fit. I am a Christian, and I believe that we are here to make the world a better place through love, not judgement or negativity. I don't bring my faith into therapy unless requested. I advocate for the LGBTQ+ community, people of color, women, children, and anyone who is oppressed. Feel free to email me to learn more about me or how I may be able to help you be the person you want to be and feel the way you want to feel.
