Experience: For over 14 years I have worked in outpatient therapy settings for both mental health and addictions. My clinical experience and training has been focused on trauma, mood disorders, life transitions and addictions. I also have a special interest in working with people who are impacted by a loved one’s addiction. I work primarily with adults but I have also worked with children under the age of 12 for the last 9 years. I have experience working with first responders (i.e. police officers, EMTs) and impaired professionals.
I am a compassionate and empathetic therapist, but I also challenge my clients to embrace the idea that change is possible. My clients discover that, with some hard work, honesty, and determination, they have always had the ability to change their lives. They just didn’t know it! My role as your therapist will be encouraging you to determine what is keeping you from living the life you want and deserve. My approach will be to challenge you when you want to give up, celebrate your victories, and most importantly, provide you with the tools to maintain the change you worked so hard to achieve.
"Talk" therapy works best when client & therapist act in a partnership as mutual "experts." My areas of expertise include trauma/abuse survivors, depression, suicide, grief, and anxiety. I am a therapist who can integrate client-problem-issues with spiritual issues. I try to fit the type of therapy to the person's problem rather than follow any one school or tradition. We humans are physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual beings. With me, clients explore these aspects of self.
Both clinical and life experiences have enabled me to coach clients with difficult families &/or children. I have worked with family members where alcoholism and substance-abuse deprive spouses &/or their children of nurture & safety. I have skills to help families where autism, ADHD, or Learning Disabilities exist.
Empathy is my art/ability to understand/guide my client's journey through pain/loss... Jesus raised a man from the dead. The "mummy" appeared at grave's opening. Jesus said, "Loose him!" My role is to help peel away my client's grave-clothes...separating True vs. False Self.
