Maya Angelou once said, “If you don’t like something change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. If you’re always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.” 

My approach to therapy is helping clients realize their own strengths and capabilities. Oftentimes, we find ourselves in difficult moments in our lives and it appears that we don’t see a way out. I believe that if we choose to dig deep enough that we will find what it is that we need to help ourselves through.

The treatment modalities that I typically utilize during therapy services is Cognitive behavioral therapy that is used to treat common mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, and substance use. I also utilize Dialectical behavioral therapy to help address mood disorders such as major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder. I utilize Solution-focused brief therapy that helps clients focus on solutions rather than the current problem. Lastly, I utilize yoga therapy to help improve overall mental health and physical health.

I am a person who thrives on knowledge and is always open to be a resource to others. As a clinician, I understand how important it is to help clients understand what they are going through and identifying resources available that can further support them and their needs.

I have been practicing in the mental health field for a little over five years. I recently graduated from Lewis University with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have practiced in both outpatient and residential treatment settings. I have experience working with clients with co- occurring disorders, developmental disabilities and those that are considered high risk, adolescents from 12-17, adults, families, and the incarcerated population. I have a master’s in criminal justice, a master’s in clinical & mental health counseling, and I am a registered yoga teacher.

I believe that you connect with others through your experiences in life. I can help clients navigate through their most difficult moments in their life and realizing their potential through their past experiences that they have overcome.

As someone who struggles with anxiety and depression and who continues to learn how to navigate through life stressors, I had to overcome many difficult moments in my life to ensure that I am truly living the life that I see for myself. I find that I am truly myself when I am at peace both mentally, physically, and spiritually. I truly enjoy traveling and any outdoor activities such a hiking, fishing and being near the water. I enjoy yoga, meditation and reading. I love animals and embracing the eight different personalities that have the pleasure of being around daily with my eight chihuahuas.
