Together we will develop a plan to help you have the life in which you desire. I am compassionate, genuine and take a great deal of pride in providing an empathetic, nonjudgmental approach to all of my clients.
Counseling Can Help
My personal and clinical experience has assisted me in providing help to others in times of emotional and mental distress. I specialize in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. These are big words used to define a therapeutic orientation. We use these theories to help others get through their struggle by challenging their negative thinking and change their unhealthy behaviors. Most issues we experience have taken place during our childhood, so for this reason I am all about getting to the core of the issue. In my experience these theories have provided my clients with the tools necessary to manage their lives. My goal is to Challenge and assist you in recognizing why you may not be content in your life. Not only with yourself but maybe with other relationships.
My Best Mental Health Advice
My advice to others is to identify your “WHY” and your “TRIGGERS.” What makes you want to quit? What feelings are you least comfortable with? If you can identify this then it will be much easier for you to conquer them. Lean into your insecurities and face them! The more you sit in the discomfort, the more you challenge and face your fears. I’m not going to lie, this part sucks!!! No one wants to sit in their insecurities and be vulnerable to pain. However, think of the alternative. Who wants to stay stuck?
Who I Am as a Therapist
As a therapist, I find myself most proud of the connection I make with my clients. My clients have commented on how well I am able to relate with them and challenge them outside of their comfort zone. I believe that it’s because of the many life struggles that I have encountered in my life that have given me the ability to empathize and relate to my clients on a deeper level than most other clinicians would. My clients are not alone and it is important they feel their therapist is on their team ready to fight like hell in order to achieve true success. I value and appreciate their vulnerability. I want to do whatever I can to impact as many women as possible. My Motto: Give Yourself Permission to Live The Life you want to live and challenge anything that gets in the way!
