I believe the start of a therapeutic relationship starts with humility and respect. I hope to help you fulfill your needs and expectations with trust, compassion, and care. I strive to help you find and utilize your inner strengths to fulfill therapeutic goals and enhance recovery.
I have a rich history of working with adults experiencing mental health disorders, ranging from depression to psychosis, substance abuse, and trauma. I have worked with diverse populations and clients of different backgrounds. I also have experience in community outreach; as a community support specialist I have linked my clients to a large range of resources and provided the hands-on support they needed. I have training and experience in crisis intervention, trauma-informed therapy, wellness management and recovery, and solution focused therapy.
