Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor - LPCC, NCC
Feeling stuck? Having a hard time settling back into your life after a transition? Do you continue to see negative patterns play out in your life and would like that to change? Well you are in the right place! I am passionate about working with individuals to create positive changes and work towards reaching their full potential.I mostly see clients who are 18-40 years of age, who want to learn healthier ways to navigate life transitions (planned or unplanned), manage issues with depression/anxiety/stress, and want to increase their relationship satisfaction with self and others.
My treatment approach to counseling is informed by contemporary psychodynamic theory and practice, trauma/attachment research, and all seen through a strength-based lens. Psychodynamic counseling focuses on the unconscious processes as they are manifested in the client’s present behavior. The goals of psychodynamic counseling are to increase self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on one’s present behavior.
I also find it overwhelmingly helpful to use mindfulness, meditation, deep muscle relaxation and yoga in my personal life, and therefore I incorporate these techniques into my work with clients.I am well versed in evidenced based treatment models that address presenting problems such as depression, anxiety, effects of traumatic experience, mental illness, and family and relationship issues. My training and experience includes working in a variety of different settings including schools, hospitals, and community mental health settings.
Message me to schedule a free 15 minute consultation. These consultations are helpful for both client, and therapist and allow us to briefly get to know each other and collaboratively decide if making the initial appointment is the right decision for you.
