I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a National Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). I work with all ages as young as 3 through the lifespan. My niche is working with children/adolescents from ages 3 - 17 years of age with trauma. I work with the same age group often. I also work with the LGBTQIA+ population. Regardless of where someone has been, or where they are going; if they are in emotional pain, I want to help make that pain heal so individuals can live happier lives. Together, we work as a team, side by side (so to speak). I never want any of my clients to ever feel unheard, or that they are "in it" alone.
I most enjoy those moments when a client, regardless of age has that "ah-ha" moment. Their eyes light up and things fall together for them. Those moments are so precious and each and every one of those moments are priceless to me.
The therapist really listened to what I was trying to work through. And I didn't feel judged.
Once a client decides they would like to work with me, I will contact the client to schedule an intake. This paperwork is all completed online prior to your first appointment. This will allow you the convenience of completing in your own place of comfort and it allows me to review your information prior to your first appointment so that we can discuss any questions there might be and then begin developing the treatment goals YOU would like to accomplish. Together we will develop this and begin our journey together. TEAMWORK!
