I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Counselor but specialize in working with adult individuals. I spent the first 8 years of my career working in a community mental health agency with the severely mentally ill who were at risk of homelessness, incarceration, and psychiatric hospitalization. The second half of my career has been helping individuals with depression and anxiety understand the root causes of their symptoms and heal from them.
I have been using Internal Family Systems informed techniques to help clients understand themselves, and their needs, and to heal the developmental gap that has prevented them from nurturing themselves. I become more like a coach who coaches the clients how to love and nurture themselves. I am also a Christian and am willing to bring in prayer and spirituality as the client likes. I also understand the unique wounds that come from trying to be a “perfect” Christian and how that can cause us to deny our needs and feelings.
If you decide to work with me, I look forward to meeting with you and seeing how I can help.
