Can I help you ?

I specialize in trauma, attachment and loss with individuals, children, and families.


I can help with the following: 

Anxiety and depression

post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

people that have survived abuse and traumas,

sleep disorders

addictions, anger problems and avoidance. 

Approach

My approach is solution-focused and client-centered. This also means that people will be in a safe empathic environment that is client driven and is action oriented. I personalize therapy for each client’s specific needs. My approach also challenges distorted perceptions and changes destructive patterns of behavior. I use Genograms (like family trees) to assist in understanding a client’s family system. My approach will provide “aha” moments with self-discoveries towards helping with the healing process. I also operate from a family systems perspective. This kind of approach helps with individual happiness and helps improve relationships. 

Therapeutic Focus

I use mindfulness-based exercises such as journaling, painting, music, relaxation training, sandtray therapy, play therapy, grounding, bi-lateral stimulation, motivational self-talk, and learning new effective ways of coping.

I also integrate person-centered therapy, positive psychology, solution-focused therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), narrative therapy, attachment theory, somatic therapy, and psycho-education.

Experience

I have provided therapy to children and families for over a year while working at Old Mill Center for Children and Families and while I practiced independently. 

Formal Training and Education

I received my Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at George Fox University (CACREP Accredited Program). I received a Bachelors in Human Services from University of Phoenix. I am certified in Psychological First Aid, and I’m trauma informed.
