As a counselor, I have a unique perspective on trauma and substance abuse, and I bring that perspective to my clients. I have seen firsthand the devastating effects of these issues and am committed to helping those who are struggling to overcome them.
My experience working in the field of substance abuse has taught me that addiction is a complex issue that often involves underlying trauma. I work with my clients to identify the root causes of their addiction and develop strategies for overcoming it.
My counseling philosophy is based on empathy, respect, and a non-judgmental attitude. I believe that every client is unique and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to counseling. I am committed to creating a safe and supportive environment where my clients feel comfortable exploring their thoughts and feelings.
In my counseling practice, I utilize an integrated approach that draws on a variety of techniques, principles, and theories. I tailor my approach to the specific needs of each client, using evidence-based therapies such as CBT, EMDR, Person-Centered, and Solution-Focused Therapies.
As a counselor educator, I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience with the next generation of counselors. I believe that it is essential for counselors to be well-versed in trauma and substance abuse, as these issues are often at the root of many mental health problems.
Overall, my goal as a counselor is to empower my clients to live their best lives. I believe that everyone has the potential to overcome their struggles and thrive, and I am honored to be a part of that journey.
I am a fully licensed professional counselor, nationally certified by NBCC, am EMDR trained and have my CAADC (Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor).
