I have a desire to understand your struggles, to facilitate an awareness of your own experience, to help you illuminate meaning in your life, and to reduce your suffering. My mission is to inspire others to achieve a worthwhile purpose and grow personally, professionally, emotionally and spiritually by using my own compassion, unique perspective, and belief in others’ inherent goodness and enormous potential.
I am passionate about working with clients with addictions including eating disorders. I have done extensive postgraduate training in counseling and addictions through a series of courses, institutes, research, workshops and seminars. I have become an advocate for maternal mental health and hope to help people better understand postpartum depression.
Although I use an eclectic and holistic approach to therapy I have been specifically trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT,) Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT,) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR,) and the Trauma Recovery and Empowerment Model. I hope to integrate mind, body and spirit with evidence-based approaches to assist you in finding your true positive potential and facilitate the deepening of your experiential awareness.
I am passionate about supporting individuals while they work through depression, anxiety and other life stressors. I am trained and knowledgeable in working with individuals who have experienced trauma, addictions including binge eating disorder, depression, and anxiety while also navigating life transitions and/or relationship challenges. It is my goal to assist each client in developing insight into how their personal experiences contribute to the current challenges they are experiencing. It is my pleasure to guide each client through the therapeutic process to achieve their individual goals and improve their quality of life.
I utilize an eclectic, client-centered approach while developing a strong therapeutic rapport focused on unconditional positive regard. I am certified as a Trauma and Resilience Practitioner and Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. In my practice, I utilize a trauma focused approach using evidenced based treatment methods including CBT and DBT.
It is an honor to have the opportunity to work with you while you navigate various challenges and changes in your life. I look forward to building a supportive, non-judgmental, and collaborative relationship with you. It is my mission to empower your personal growth to achieve overall balance and the quality of life that you deserve.
