SPECIALTIES and approach
I specialize in trauma specifically sexual trauma/sex specific treatment, anxiety/depression, obsessive thought disorders, addictions and ADD/ADHD. I take pride in the integrity and quality of the treatment I provide my clients. My approach is unique in the sense that I make it my top priority to give my clients my undivided attention as well as feedback so they can feel that they are getting the most out of each session and really conquering their therapeutic goals one session at a time. I am grateful that my client’s have developed such a comfort level to express and process severely traumatic events and or their own victimization that has occurred in their lives (especially those disclosing for the first time). It is an honor to be with you on this journey towards you achieving your goals.
I have experience providing therapeutic services to an array of populations from early childhood to late adulthood, specifically at-risk youth/ juveniles and adult sex offenders. I am grateful for the various settings in which I have had the opportunity to complete my clinical work in and influential and supportive clinical supervisors that have made a positive impact on my personal and professional growth. In addition, I have worked in treatment settings such as an early childhood partial care programs, juvenile correction facilities, adult outpatient clinics, intensive in-home services, out of home treatment settings serving at-risk youth, and specialized sex offender treatment/detention alternative treatment home programs.
