Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Welcome and thank you for viewing my profile. I provide psychotherapy to individuals, children/teens, families, and groups facing a wide range of challenges. With compassion and understanding I work with you to build upon your strengths and natural resources. Because I believe each of us is unique I use an integration of theoretic approaches in order to create an effective, personalized approach. By providing a comfortable and safe environment I work with you to meet your needs and to attain the personal growth you are striving for. My experience includes working with youth (3-18) and caregivers facing different challenges including but not limited to trauma, fost/adopt, substance abuse, mood/anxiety, developmental/autism spectrum, academic, and behavioral. I have worked with adults with abuse experiences, substance abuse, mood/anxiety, developmental/autism spectrum, trauma, and relationship challenges. I have a specialization in Expressive Arts Therapy and am working to become a REAT (Registered Expressive Arts Therapist). I have been trained in Trauma Focused CBT (evidenced based treatment for trauma), trained in Brief Strategic Family Therapy, and am completing training for Trauma Informed Art Therapy certification.
