Profile
“I work to help others learn things about self-esteem and guilt that I had not been taught, and strive to help my clients live better lives and take an easier path than I had to.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My journey to help others lead their best lives started over 15 years ago. I have worked with a range of therapy services to help guide children, youth, and adults through life’s challenges and most trying times. I work to help others learn things about self-esteem and guilt that I had not been taught, and strive to help my clients live better lives and take an easier path than I had to. When I saw the profound effect that EMDR had in helping me, I became trained myself; to see others be able to have relief after years of distress is very rewarding.
What should someone know about working with you?
Intake is a basic taking of history and looking at factors outside of just the individual issues. We are not looking to identify a primary diagnosis, but to get a whole picture of those things that are affecting us in the present. This history includes family of origin, sometimes going back several generations, if it helps define the issues of today. I view progress as relief from the symptoms that are causing distress to a person. It's less a curing of a diagnosis and more about having some enlightenment into our lives, our triggers, the things that make us fulfilled, making more logical decisions moving forward, and not being stuck in repeating problem behaviors from the past.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I continue to train in areas that support my primary modality of EMDR, which is built on the Adaptive Information Model. I take additional trainings in ego state therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and somatic therapies.
