I am motivated and dedicated to mental health due to my own personal experience. I have had close loved ones living with mental illness and addiction and have seen the difficulties that come with seeking help and overcoming stigma. This is not only something that has impacted my loved one, but also my whole family. Being able to offer support and understanding to loved ones in navigating how to help and learning how to help through boundary setting, learning new skills to manage their own emotions, and also in validating their experiences.

Specialties & Issues
Throughout my years working with a wide range of individuals, I noticed that while many people struggle with mental health concerns they are not the only ones impacted. I have had experience working in the mental health field and have worked in a variety of settings including private practice settings, home visits, and community mental health treatment. I have had experience working with a broad range of clients including individuals with mood disorders (including depression and bipolar disorder) as well as anxiety. In that experience, I learned I was able to offer true support to family members the best. The family unit and loved ones are so impacted by seeing their loved one struggle. It makes it difficult to set boundaries with family members who struggle with mental health concerns and also leave a feeling of helplessness when the help a loved one can offer is so limited.
My counseling style is warm and approachable. I have experience with various forms of therapy including Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Seeking Safety, Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and traditional psychotherapy. I will use the skills I have to tailor our time together to your needs and meet you where you are at. I strongly believe that you are the expert in your life and your experiences. We are equals and I believe in a true collaboration. I want to be a support for you and treat you with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.
