Areas of expertise. 

Anxiety & Social Anxiety, Perinatal Mood Disorders, Depression, Self-Esteem & Self-Image, Animal Assisted Therapy, Life-Transitions Adjustments, Vision Related Issues 

Approach.

Solution Focused, Strength-based, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach with an emphasis on self-compassion. 

 

My focus varies on the individuals I work with. I truly appreciate each person’s individual story, and collaboratively identifying goals. I am committed to understanding the complex way in which you are motivated, and alternatively, identifying barriers to this motivation. I utilize a gentle, but firm approach in addressing these. Let’s avoid that avoidance together!

 

I am a huge advocate for improving self-esteem. I think it’s an issue that affects so many different areas of our lives including relationships, family, our work, even daily functions such as ordering food or trying something new. I try to incorporate techniques and skills to improve confidence and form a positive sense of self. I also host a Self-Esteem Workgroup that focuses on decreasing self-doubt. Companions, and increasing assertiveness, and identity. Knowing who you are, increases comfortability in existence.

The weirdest thing about a mind is that you can have the most intense things going on in there, but no one else can see them.

When I was two years old, an accident left me without half my vision. However, from a very young age I realized only being able to see out of my right eye somehow gave me more sight than I ever could imagine. Especially learning to adapt, maneuver, and rebuild in a new way. Losing sight doesn’t have to equal blindness, but can give a vision, a new perspective to see from. And that’s what I want to do for you. Help you find your own view, giving you the right glasses to overcome your own challenge and strengthen your resilience. 

 

We all have things in our lives that make us sad, put us down, cause stress, fear or self-doubt. Often society forces us to think that not being okay is problematic. I’m here to help you see that it IS okay to not be okay. And it IS okay to need help, we all do sometimes. Although the struggles are important to process, moving forward- I want to help you figure out how you can take that experience and fill up your own personal toolkit for when life breaks you down, so that you can build your foundation stronger. Ready for the next. 

 

My experience varies, I’ve worked with adults, children, teens, at risk youth, juveniles, domestic violence victims, parents, with CPS, schools, and those in crisis receiving inpatient services. My history has influenced my perspective that treating each person needs to be individualized and collaborative. Meaning that the person that knows you the best is you! So you are in fact, an expert of yourself. (How cool, right?) And I’m glad to work with you using an approach that makes you feel comfortable, more confident, and motivated. Therapy isn’t always black and white, it’s adaptive- as it should be! As humans, our main similarity is that we are all different. We have different emotions, wants and needs. So why not approach therapy in that way?

 

Through the implementation of techniques and interventions from evidence-based theories, along with inticing real life conversations and your active participation, we can tackle your difficulties head on. I will guide you, challenge you and assist you in growing into the best you that you can be.

 

When I am not doing therapy, you can find me doing home DIY projects and remodeling, enjoying sunshine on walks and spending time with my husband, daughter and two special pups – Della, a Goldendoodle, and a little Border Collie named Gray.
