Life offers so much to be enjoyed and known and shared. I offer a therapeutic relationship that is designed to help you live your life more fully. Whatever your struggle, suffering can worsen if you don’t have support. Information and skills may assist with how to work within your circumstances. Yet, emotional connections and corrective experiences within therapy often effect the most change. Together, we are likely to find more optimistic outcomes.
As a graduate of Regent University with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I am trained to provide professional care for diagnosable symptoms. During the past 5 years, I gained clinical experience serving in a group foster home for teens, supporting residents of a local nursing home, and working in two group private practices. I have helped improve lives with a wide range of clients, including self-harming adolescents. I really enjoy helping couples deepen their bond and reduce conflict. I regularly help individuals process difficult experiences and developmental trauma.
I provide Trauma-informed care and possess certification in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Also, I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist. Currently, I am working through the process for certification with ICEEFT, the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).
My theoretical approach draws richly from Attachment Theory, Existential influences, Family & Social Systems, and Psycho-dynamic psychology applied in a Person-Centered way. For those who desire it, I can integrate Christian counseling into clinical care. Ultimately, all of life is a classroom for growth and improvement, whatever your age and circumstances. I hope to meet you soon if you think I may be a fit for your therapeutic benefit.
