I believe that when individuals enter therapy, they can learn to challenge and replace irrational thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes that have kept them stuck or not living their best life. Through therapy individuals are free to experience change as they let go of what is not working in their life.
I am passionate about working with individuals who are committed to bettering themselves and making positive shifts in their lives. Taking time to focus on one’s self is hard work, but there is truly nothing more rewarding. Regardless of one’s background, I believe everyone has the ability to change. This fuels my passion to help people in their journey for growth.
My approach is warm, collaborative and respectful. I help you develop the tools to cope more effectively with the challenges of life. I utilize a multi-disciplinary approach with clients, including family systems theory, cognitive behavioral theory, and person-centered therapy, among others. These theories can provide practical solutions for the present, while keeping in mind how the past has affected us.
I began my career in the helping field after obtaining my Bachelor's in Psychology. Initially, I started working in this field 15 years ago helping with children with disabilities as an Applied Behavior Analysis. I then moved to working directly with the families of children with disabilities, helping them with coping skills in the home. I found this work invigorating and inspiring. This led me to want to help in other ways, thus pursing my Master's degree in clinical psychology to help with a more in-depth clinical approach with children, teens and adults.
