Outpatient Mental Health Professional
I work with adults and older teens experiencing depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, family conflict, and life stressors and transitions. I also work with couples and families on improving communication and working through conflict.
EMDR is my main approach, which draws on a few different influences from psychodynamic theory and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), among others. However, my first goal is to thoroughly understand each client and what they are dealing with. I also approach each person with Mind, Body, and Spirit in mind: How is the person either fulfilled or unfulfilled in each area? We can then set goals together about what they want their life to look like during and after therapy.
I enjoy practicing/connecting with my spirituality, taking physical care of my body (running, yoga, food), singing and music, and laughter.
