Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Relational, Solution-focused, Strengths-based
I have been licensed since 2012 and have over 15 years of experience working in the field of mental health providing services to children and adults. Over the last several years I have garnered experience in a variety of settings including non-profit settings, outpatient and community mental health. I have experience providing an array of mental health services including individual, family, group, and couple's therapy.
I have experience providing services to individuals struggling with symptoms related to their mental health. Using a holistic and Strengths-Based approach I work collaboratively with each individual to define their clinical goals while celebrating their strengths. I utilize a collaborative and real-life approach to develop goals and intervention strategies that will best meet the needs of the individual. My therapeutic approach focuses on gaining a greater understanding of the unique needs of each person and the recognition of resiliency in each individual.

Enjoy traveling and exploring new places. I like spending time with my family and friends.

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. It was a good combination of drama, mystery, and a love story.
Shriner's Hospital for Children. I respect and appreciate that children and their families are able to receive treatment regardless of their ability to pay. From my experience of one having a client several years ago, there I was able to observe the holistic approach to treatment they had toward her and her family.
