Life can be full of challenges and sometimes we need someone to talk to in order for us to feel like ourselves again. As a trauma-informed therapist, I believe in providing each of my clients with a nonjudgmental stance, empathy, and a caring attitude through their toughest moments.
I have experience in working with a diverse span of mental health conditions through my experiences in community mental health and private specialty clinics. I have found that I work particularly well with clients struggling with complex diagnoses and behaviors including Bipolar Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Self-Harm, and Dissociative Disorders. I believe that all individuals can benefit from therapy and have a particular passion for working with clients that identify within the LGBTQ community as well as adolescents, families, and young adults.
I consider my clinical approach to be both person-centered and behavioral. As such, I believe that all clients are doing the best that they can with the skills that they have and that they can benefit from learning additional skills to implement between sessions. I believe that there is a great benefit to processing together in therapy as well as learning and trying skills in our everyday life. If you are looking for a therapist with a passion for discussing the “tough stuff” in life, consider me as a therapist. I recognize that therapy can be challenging at times and It’s my hope that we can work together to make changes in your life at a pace that feels comfortable and effective. I would love to chat with you to see if I would be a good fit for you!
