Fantasy teaches us that if we wait, a hero will come along and save us. It is my belief that with the right set of tools, we all have the ability to do this ourselves. As a therapist, it is my goal to assist clients in processing their thoughts and feelings and help them learn tools they can utilize in real life situations. The first step is to create a safe environment where clients can feel heard and seen. Together we will create individualized goals building off client’s natural strengths. This allows clients to feel empowered; where we can finally move our old stories aside and cultivate self-compassion and growth. I have had the pleasure of working clients across the lifespan, with a passion for working with children and adolescents. Talk therapy can sometimes be hard for people especially kids; I like to use techniques such as art, play, games and relaxation to help these clients not only communicate but feel calm.
Qualifications and Approach:
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with experience in working with children and adolescents helping to manage their anxiety and OCD symptoms. I do this by helping them feel more in control of those intrusive thoughts that can make us all feel out of control. The treatment modalities include CBT, EMDR and person centered.
