As a clinician I feel that it is important to help clients feel safe and validated in their need and desire to receive mental health services. I believe that everyone can benefit from learning skills and tools to help them cultivate a healthy and fulfilling relationship with themselves and others. I also believe that an individual’s mental, physical, spiritual, and social wellbeing are all interconnected, and that when one aspect of our wellbeing is impacted, the others are as well. Consequently, during sessions I try to be mindful of the various aspects of my client’s wellbeing and life.
When working with clients, I often take an eclectic approach to meeting their needs by drawing from a variety of therapeutic methods and tools to adapt to the individual needs and concerns of each unique client. Some of the modalities that I have received training in and used in my practice thus far, include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT); Mind Body Bridging and Mindfulness; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); and Motivational Interviewing.
Through the course of my education and professional experience, I have had the privilege to work with a variety of youth. Between my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Marriage and Family Studies, and my graduate degree in Social Work, I worked with children and teenagers that were experiencing developmental delays and learning disabilities. During my graduate degree I worked with teenagers struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse issues, as well as youth inside of and transitioning out of the Juvenile Justice System. Additionally, during my graduate degree I gained experience working in community mental health with children, teenagers, and adults experiencing severe and persistent mental illnesses and familial challenges.
