Clients who grew up in alcoholic, abusive, or dysfunctional family units have very similar struggles and maladaptive coping strategies. It's helped them to survive and make it through some dark days (what we call strengths based survival; you made it, you did it, and now that you're an adult you can learn new, healthy ways of coping with daily life). I love helping clients realize the power of their voice, the benefits of owning their life story, and the connected emotions to it. This takes courage; It's powerful when clients catch the vision that they CAN learn to trust, they CAN overcome the past, and they CAN find hope & healing. I’m passionate about helping my clients work through past shame, pain, insecurities, abandonment, trauma, & abuse. I’m trained in EMDR therapy, Experiential therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. I find that using these therapy styles helps my clients with understanding and working through core emotional, mental, and behavioral issues and concerns. I enjoy helping clients see their own worth, value, and potential; as well as, championing their strengths and helping them overcome destructive habits, past wounds, and unresolved core issues. I understand the power held in each client finding their voice, sharing their voice, and living life authentically. It’s courageous to reach out for help!
