As a Resident in Counseling, I provide trauma-focused and culturally sensitive therapy. I am dedicated to meeting the needs of the growing number of individuals experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties. I assist children 10 and up, adolescents, and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, health concerns, grief, gender-related issues, interpersonal conflicts, women's issues, life transitions, relationship challenges, and traumatic experiences. I believe that the therapeutic process can help the client move towards their goal while gaining a better understanding of self and finding a purpose. I am a certified complex trauma professional (CCTP) and trained dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). I utilize CBT, DBT, creative arts therapy, and mindfulness-based stress reduction while working with the client to alleviate emotional pain associated with trauma or life stressors and begin the path of self-acceptance. My training and experience include helping clients with trauma-related experiences by working through conflict and becoming a more balanced individual. I assist clients in learning and implementing life skills to minimize frustration and create a satisfying life.
