I am licensed as an Independent License Mental Health Counseling Associate and certified as a Chemical Dependency Professional (Addiction counselor). I do not accept insurance at this time.
I have 20 years experience working with foster care programs, at risk (GLBTQ) youth, young adults in transition, aging and disability individuals, groups in treatment at a variety of clinical settings in residential facilities/ community health agencies with inpatient/ outpatient care utilizing emotional regulation /mindfulness practices, trauma focused practices, and addictions treatment.
Lets exchange dialogue for our sessions, use expressive arts therapy, dream analysis, explore play to connect with your inner child, track sensations with the mind, body and spirit for grounding purposes &/or to help you regain access to your inner wisdom for self advocacy through strength base building approaches.
Approaches I am influenced by are with the following processes; relational, attachment/ abandonment, traumas, reversal therapy for athletes, existential, behavioral theories, plus trained in DBT, SFBT, Carl Jung practices, social justice counseling and Expressive Arts Therapy. It would be an honor to join with you on your journey of self discovery and healing.
