My approach to counseling is one which is collaborative and reflective; my client and I work together to explore emotions, body sensations, thoughts, beliefs and unique life experiences. In this process, we will create a deeper understanding of a client's personal background, using it as a road map for increasing success in present relationships, personal / career goals, and overall appreciation of, and compassion for oneself. Many people experience fear when considering talking with someone about their past or current struggles. In my practice, I value a non-judgmental and open-minded approach to support clients' journey of healing.
I have specialized training in trauma and dissociative disorders, including Brainspotting, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), counselor education, and counselor supervision (Doctorate of Counselor Education and Supervision; Approved Clinical Supervisor credential).
