Marriage & Family Therapist Intern, MA
"I enjoy working with individuals who experience fear, anxiety, obsessions and compulsions, trauma, and depression. With individuals, I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with a strength-based, social justice perspective. This method helps us look at and work with the thoughts and emotions you hold about yourself, others and the world that get in the way of moving towards happiness and living the life you want. I am trained in EMDR and have used this approach with great success with clients experiencing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), anxiety and many other issues."

"My passion and speciality is focused around working with teens and their families. My counseling approach is centered on the individual teen and their specific needs. Creating a safe and supportive space for teens to express their struggles, fears, dreams, and passions is my primary goal in treatment. Working with the family in developing healthy communication skills and realistic expectations for their teen is also an important step in the treatment process. Providing a neutral space for teens and their families to communicate their feelings often leads to a better understanding of each others perspectives and a deeper connection."
"I have been told that I bring hope to situations, experiences and behaviors that often feel hopeless. Specializing in working with families, children, adolescents and parents, I work collaboratively with client/s to identify and develop goals, and a road map of how we will know that these goals are being met as we work together. I work actively with clients using their knowledge and strengths towards reaching their goals."

"Are you feeling stuck, trapped, and/or anxious? Perhaps you feel you don't measure up to what *you believe* others expect of you, or to what you expect of yourself? These feelings and others may indicate an underlying misalignment in your life. It may be time to discover what is underneath your feelings, aching to come out of hiding. Growing the ability to reconnect with your life, and with others who are important to you, could be key. If you are feeling anxious, it may be that something in you is trying to get your attention."
