My work experience within community mental health has  allowed me to treat a wide range of mental and emotional issues, but I have specialized in treating the following:​

  • Adults, 18 + 

  • Emotional Disturbance 

  • LGBTQ+ affirming/allied

  • Gender and identity

I have been dedicated to diverse and inclusive experiences, as I have worked as a vocational rehabilitation counselor serving individuals with physical, mental and sensory-processing disorders, to providing case management and therapeutic services within community mental health agencies. .

Types of therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT): can help address unhelpful thoughts and behavioral patterns.  

  • Brainspotting: A focused mindfulness practice that uses fixed eye positions to help clients reprocess emotional pain and distress.   

  • Motivational Interviewing: To assist clients with taking steps towards making and sustaining change. 

  • Attachment Theory: I use an attachment theory approach in practice. Those I work with will learn more about their attachment style and use the therapeutic relationship to improve emotional regulation skills to navigate their relationships with others
