While I have experience with a wide variety of issues, and am happy to work with anyone who feels I may be a good fit for them as their therapist, I do specialize in working with a few specific populations. I use trauma-informed approaches to help those who have experienced or witnessed trauma first-hand, who have developed secondary trauma in the course of providing support to those directly impacted, and adolescents who are considered at-risk due to behavioral or mental health concerns.
I serve those who have experienced or witnessed trauma that are looking to heal and grow; this includes those individuals suffering from complex trauma and people who have dealt with multiple traumas throughout their life.
I address secondary trauma, also known as vicarious trauma, in first responders, as well as and people in high-stress occupations who are struggling with burnout and compassion fatigue.
I help at-risk adolescents (11+) and their families when behavioral concerns, such as defiance, aggression, or suicidal thoughts & actions, have resulted in academic, social, occupational, and/or legal difficulties.
Regardless of your reason for seeking out therapy, I provide a confidential, reflective, and non-judgmental environment as we work together to achieve your goals. I continuously strive to learn and develop new skills in the hopes of helping each person on their own journey through this life, to foster growth, and help people rediscover contentment.
