“Happiness is not out there for us to find. The reason that it’s not our there is that it’s inside us.” ~ Sonja Lyubomirsky
Topics I Address
I am trained to work with a variety of issues, but have greatest interest in addressing clients with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, school or work issues, help with addressing life changes, transitions, such as new job, school, families changes, processing grief, trauma, and abuse. I utilize many techniques in my approach, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, and when working with children, utilize child-centered play therapy.
My Thoughts on the Therapeutic Process
I believe that within each individual lies the ability to change and grow. I believe it is important to build a strong and open therapeutic relationship between client and therapist. When a person can feel comfortable and be honest and open about who they are, revealing vulnerabilities that they may have never revealed before, it truly helps a person to be well and flourish.
My Professional Experience
I have been working in the field of mental health for about eight years and have worked with a variety of populations, including children on the Autism Spectrum, ADHD, and other behavioral health challenges, children and families in foster care, and adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and psychotic disorders, both in outpatient and inpatient settings.
