My clients have experienced trauma and grief that has lead to an inability to move forward in life, relationship issues, depression, anxiety and PTSD. They are questioning their faith and purpose in life. If you're feeling lost, hurt and emotionally overwhelmed and if you're looking to heal from the past so you can move forward into a brighter future, I'd love to come along side of you on your journey. Together we will formulate a plan that fits you and your unique needs.
My Background and Approach
Not only am I professionally trained in several Evidence Based Trauma therapies, I am a survivor of childhood abuse as well as domestic violence. I know the freedom that can come once the hard work of healing has taken place and I want that for my clients. I want that for you. My approach is warm, empathetic and strengths-based. Sessions are a combination of exploration and skill-building. I utilize EMDR as well as CBT and Mindfulness. I will non-judgmentally meet you where you are at and help you move past judging yourself. I fully embrace the belief that the positive alliance between client and clinician makes an immense difference. This is why choosing your clinician is so important. I work best with those who are motivated for the healing process to begin, but know that may take time. It takes courage I believe we all have within us. I hope you will choose to partner with me. There is no better time to invest in yourself than now.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My undergraduate degree is in Multi-cultural Studies with minors in Faith-based Counseling and Biblical Studies. Getting my Master's Degree in Social Work made sense because of the importance and value on the dignity and worth of all people. It fit my values well. I've specialized in trauma and care deeply about helping others in emotional pain. I am passionate about social justice and want to be a part of helping others that have been wounded by their faith traditions. There are many wondering how to go forward after their church or place of worship did not support them through times of domestic violence and emotional abuse. They are fearful to seek help. I live out my faith with kindness to everyone no matter what faith, gender, sexual orientation, nationality, political affiliation or race. I am dedicated to serving Jesus and others and know needing help is not a moral failing.
