As a graduate with a Master of Social Work, I now have over eight years of clinical and non-clinical experience working with families. I have explored, analyzed, and used effective interventions for families, couples, and individuals based on what I've experienced as a nanny, child behavior specialist, social worker, and mental health therapist. Additionally, I specialize in working with children and adolescents struggling with defiance, neuro-diverse difficulties/differences, trauma, and general anxiety/depression. I use somatic experiencing techniques, DBT, CBT, ( EMDR if the client is an appropriate fit for this modality), and interpersonal processing mostly, among a few other techniques. I also work with adults and I believe trust and rapport are the foundational elements that make a therapeutic journey successful.
I have been working in the field of behavioral health for the past 15 years. I have a Ph.D. in Rehabilitation and extensive experience in providing therapy for adults with a variety of mental health and substance use disorders (i.e. trauma, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, anger management, marriage counseling). I am also able to effectively utilize Christian/faith-based principles as requested by my clients.

Reaching out for help can be daunting and I applaud you for taking this initial step toward living a more rewarding life. I approach therapy as a collaborative process; working closely with you to ensure your goals for treatment are always my priority.

The hardest part of the therapeutic process is reaching the door of the therapist. It is my belief that the work has begun from that moment on. I believe the relationship you develop with your therapist is essential to feel and know you are "heard". Holding space for people and finding a way to the light of healing. Change occurs when a person is willing to bring the issue or issues into the light. As a therapist, it is my goal to assist you in finding deeper meaning and healing. It is my position to help you through the process. I look forward to helping you along the journey of healing.  Call for help:  (719) 345-2424
