MA, NCC, LPC, CCTP, EMDR Trained
Welcome! I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) with over 10 years of experience. I'm dedicated to creating a safe and supportive space where you can embark on your journey toward healing and happiness. I believe that, beyond credentials and techniques, what matters most is the connection between therapist and client. I invite you to take the time to learn about myself, and any therapist you are considering, before your first session ensuring you feel understood and supported on your path to well-being.
In my practice, I specialize in trauma-informed counseling services for adults (19+ and out of high school), tailoring each session to meet your unique needs. My therapeutic approach incorporates evidence-based techniques, such as EMDR and ego states/IFS, to guide you through the process of uncovering and strengthening your confidence, core self, and identity.
My passion for this work stems from a personal journey of understanding my own family history of addiction and complex trauma. Having worked in various mental health and addiction treatment centers, I discovered my true calling in supporting survivors of traumatic experiences and emotional abuse, as well as individuals striving for freedom from addiction. To me, each person is a warrior on a path to healing, and it's an honor to walk alongside them.
I recognize that we are not defined by your symptoms but rather by the diverse tapestry of life experiences, both challenging and positive. Together, we'll work to help you gain practical skills that empower you, fostering a sense of control over your everyday life.
Remember, you make sense even when it feels like you don't. Let's embark on this journey of self-discovery and healing together!
