EdD, MA, MCM, LPC, NCC
I focus on adolescent and adult using CBT and other individualized tools in order to change perspectives and empower the person. I primarily work with clients, experiencing anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma and relationship concerns.
There are some challenges we feel ill-equipped to handle, especially when they accompany major life transitions. These experiences can greatly impact our sense of stability, leave us feeling incapable and even doubtful about the future. I am committed to providing you with honest, respectful and thoughtful treatment to best serve your needs. I seek to help individuals, who feel stuck due to negative past experiences or trauma. I assist people in uncovering patterns and negative self-talk that has resulted in unhealthy behaviors.
My work with people is strength-based and client-centered. My approach is eclectic and combines multiple modalities and tools depending on your needs and goals. Some of them include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Christian Counseling, Solution-Focused Therapy, Art Therapy, Aroma Therapy and Sand Tray Therapies.
Social/Restorative Justice; Collaborative Problem-Solving; Spirituality; Moral Reconation Therapy are other practices and theories that influence my approach to therapy. My education combined with years of experience as a counselor/teacher to the at-risk population, has influenced my work with adolescents and adults.
I desire to help people overcome the concerns that prevent them from living and experiencing fulfillment in life. I enjoy being able to encourage people and to celebrate their successes. But the most meaningful moments are when “the light bulb comes on” and this changes the person’s path. I was born for this!
