Professional statement

I have many years of experience working with early childhood trauma and severe, persistent mental illness, varying from ages of 5 years to 70+. My goal is to empower and advocate for positive change within you, as the individual, and the system as a whole. The place that we will create together is a safe and judgment-free space. I work through an Existential foundation, to help those I work with seek meaning and purpose, with skills built from experience with Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, all within the context of a trauma-informed approach.

My passion is sharing my knowledge of mental health and skills that can help overcome past trauma, current stressors, and barriers that present from struggles with mental health. Change can happen and things can get better.

What is most important to me is building a strong, therapeutic relationship built upon a base of authenticity, respect, and trust to facilitate positive change to meet each individual’s personal goals.
