I work with adolescents ages 13+ and adults with multiple mental health concerns including, but not limited to: trauma, PTSD, mood disorders, anxiety, grief and loss, stress management, self-harm behaviors, suicidal ideation, LGBT related concerns, self-esteem, thought disorders, personality disorders, the SPMI population, and forensic issues. I enjoy working with both adults and adolescents ages 13+. I have experience in crisis intervention. I am an EMDR trained clinician.
I use trauma-informed, client-centered, strengths-based, and solution-focused approaches, with both CBT and DBT skills included. I believe that the best results come from meeting each client where they are at, and building a plan for therapy together.
I enjoy hanging out with my nieces and nephews, reading, crocheting, listening to live music, traveling, eating good food and being in good company.
