I am a Licensed Professional Counselor that has been practicing for a few years after a career change led me to pursue a different calling in life. I earned a degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University with honors. I also hold a second degree Master’s in Business Administration. I enjoy working with issues related to complex trauma, anxiety, depression and ADHD. In my practice, I see individuals (age 16 and above) and couples.
Most of us at some point will encounter times that are difficult. Finding the courage to reach out and not face those difficult to even overwhelming /unpredictable times alone is brave. Counseling can help offer a person to walk beside you to see the wisdom inherently within yourSelf. I know the transformation and healing you desire is within every person although sometimes covered up because that was necessary at some time. We just need to reclaim and reconnect your inner Self.
I inherently believe that when people feel truly seen, heard and witnessed from a curious and compassionate space, healing can begin. I offer an invitation to allow me to guide you to learn to listen to all aspects of your thoughts, feelings, and what is going on inside your body using a more experiential approach that is often different than traditional talk therapy. Experiential therapy is a creative process that can encompass talking, guided imagery, props, colors, or other ways to allow space from all that may be going on inside us. I use Internal Family Systems as the primary modality for both my individual and couples sessions.
Internal Family Systems is a non-pathologziing, client-led approach that allows me the privilege of guiding people to listen with curiosity that creates space and clarity to what is happening inside of themselves. This process allows client to tap into a whole, undamaged calm, connected, confident, creative and compassionate space inside of all of us which leads to lasting transformations. I would love to be your guide in this journey.
