Great to meet you!
I am a trauma specialist committed to helping people survive & thrive after crisis, trauma, or in times of stress. I also specialize in treating anxiety & depression symptoms which often go hand-in-hand with crisis or trauma. My work focuses on building strength & resiliency through a variety of creative & evidence-based approaches. My practice blends real world crisis management & response experience since 2005, and clinical knowledge & experience since 2017.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I’m passionate about creating culturally competent & caring mental health resources for the first responder, veteran, & LGBTQIA communities. I believe in a collaborative approach to therapy and pride myself on using creative approaches and evidence-based interventions that suit my clients’ individuality. I use an eclectic approach to therapy to achieve this goal, including: solution-focused, narrative, cognitive-behavioral & reality therapies along with mindfulness & positive psychology.
What you can expect from our first session
During an initial session my primary focus is gaining a deeper understanding of my clients life & concerns, along with their desired outcomes & goals for counseling so that we can work as a team to generate the best treatment plan. As our sessions progress, clients can expect a holistic approach to therapy that address their overall mental health & wellness.
