How would you describe therapy with you?

As a relative to someone who suffers from a severe mental illness, I have seen the journey it takes to heal. Through being a supportive observer, I have come to appreciate the role trust and rapport plays in the therapeutic relationship. I take a person-centered approach to counseling which emphasizes that you are the expert of your struggles, feelings, and emotions. Together we can collaboratively address underlying issues that may impact significant areas of your life that you may not even be aware of.

​My Passions and Specialties: ​

My career has afforded me opportunities to work with all ages from infants to geriatric populations. I have extensive experience in crisis and severe mental health disorders that has provided me the tools necessary to remain calm in tense situations. Through my PhD work, I have studied holistic health and mind-body medicine which enables me to incorporate unique mindfulness techniques to address a variety of issues that stem from struggles such as communication, stress, poor life balance, and chronic anxiety. My full range of specialties include:

  • Trauma

  • Stress

  • Healthy communication

  • Anger management

  • Work/life balance

  • Identity development

  • Sexual identity

  • Cultural identity

  • Depression

  • Low motivation

  • Anxiety

  • Social anxiety

  • Gender identity exploration

  • Therapeutic humor

  • Life dissatisfaction

 

My Personal Journey:

I am a survivor of a mass shooting, mental health educator, humanitarian clown, and PhD student studying mind-body medicine with an emphasis in integrated mental health. My specific interests are holistic healing and therapeutic humor. I have studied extensively under Dr Hunter “Patch” Adams to learn the importance of laughter and the role appropriately timed humor plays in our healing journey. I spend my down time presenting at conferences and workshops on the topic of mental health stigma and social acceptance of mental health interventions to reduce misrepresentation and misunderstandings of the mental health field. My career is built on my passion to help those in need find opportunities to heal rather than suppressing or avoiding their symptoms.
