"We can get through t​his together"

Therapy Works

We all have struggled with hard times that make it hard to connect meaningfully with the world around us and the people in it. I am here so you do not have to face those times alone. Together we can face depression, work to limit the impact of past traumatic experiences, and end substance use that may be increasing the discomfort. I am your ally.


I offer a solution focused, client centered experience that is nonjudgmental, and accepting of the client's life experience. I work hard to meet clients where they are at and focus on growth throughout the journey. I specialize in Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, and Substance Abuse outpatient counseling.   


I am accepting adolescents (age 14+) and adults who are interested in individual therapy.

I AM ONLY ACCEPTING CLIENTS FOR TELETHERAPY OR VIDEO CONFRENCING DUE TO COVID.

Assessment

During your assessment, you will be asked questions about: Your mental health, your substance use,  and your general health. This includes how your mental health problem and substance use is making you feel, how you are coping with the symptoms and whether these make it difficult for you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is a counselling method that involves enhancing a patient's motivation to change by means of four guiding principles, represented by the acronym RULE: Resist the righting reflex; Understand the patient's own motivations; Listen with empathy; and Empower the patient.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders and severe mental illness. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life. In many studies, CBT has been demonstrated to be as effective as, or more effective than, other forms of psychological therapy or psychiatric medications.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy. Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others.  DBT can help people who have difficulty with emotional regulation or are exhibiting self-destructive behaviors (eating disorders and substance use disorders).  DBT is sometimes used to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Eye Movement Desensitization

EMDR therapy is a phased, focused approach to treating traumatic and other symptoms by reconnecting the client in a safe and measured way to the images, self-thoughts, emotions, and body sensations associated with the trauma, and allowing the natural healing powers of the brain to move toward adaptive resolution.

Substance Abuse Treatment

(Harm Reduction)

Harm reduction refers to policies, programs and practices that aim to minimize negative health, social and legal impacts associated with drug use, drug policies and drug laws. Harm reduction is grounded in justice and human rights - it focuses on positive change and on working with people without judgement, coercion, discrimination, or requiring that they stop using drugs as a precondition of support.
