When you work with me you will be safe and cared for, after all the crux of counseling is relationship. My approach is one of healing through relationship. I believe that the counseling relationship gives people the chance to experience healthy relationships. Boundaries, compassion, empathy, truth, and caring. I will walk with you (or your children and family) through whatever difficulty you may be facing. If you're considering me to work with your child they will be treated as precious, unique, and as with all of us, a beautiful work in progress.
I am EMDR trained and believe in the brain's ability to heal. I believe that past is present and to understand what is happening currently we must look at what has come before. I specialize in trauma and anxiety, but I am equipped for other diagnoses as well. I also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), play therapy, and mindfulness based techniques. I use the Gottman Method with couples.
Feel free to ask me any questions! :)
