As a therapist my goal in therapy is to assist children/adolescents to achieve success in awareness of themselves, relationships and healthy self esteem. I believe in helping children/adolescents restore and strengthen relationships with their families through healthy communication and age-appropriate boundaries. I incorporate techniques such as play, art, ETT (emotional transformation therapy) and communicative concepts to achieve these goals.
I offer assessments and counseling that help target everyday challenges at home, school, and other social situations. I assist families in creating individualized treatment plans that specifically address the needs of each client and their families.
I provide parent coaching that uses assessments to identify the best behavioral tools to improve communication and relationships among family members.
In addition, I believe in helping adult clients achieve wholeness by integrating the emotional,spiritual, mental and physical aspects of them. I assist clients to achieve healthier relationships with communication skills and appropriate conflict resolution. I enjoy helping clients achieve emotional health and resolving past and present issues to accomplish a healthier, abundant life. Finally, I am trained in faith-based counseling. If this is something you are interested in pursuing further as part of your treatment, please ask me about it and we will discuss it in more detail. If at any point you or I determine that a referral is needed, I will provide you with referrals and/or resources to assist you.
