I am a licensed professional counselor, raised in Arizona. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Arizona State University in 2010. From there, I obtained my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a Forensic Concentration from Argosy University, Phoenix in 2013.
I completed an intensive one-year residency program specializing in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. During that time, I also became trained in EMDR for treating trauma.
In addition to working with adults in an outpatient setting, I worked with adolescents with severe behavioral and mental health issues at a secure residential treatment facility. There, I became trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) as an alternative to EMDR.
I am here to help you if you suffer from the many stressors that come our way, either on a daily basis, or if they have been there for years. I work from a mindfulness based approach to help you feel more in control of the present moment. I can help aid in overcoming the many hurdles life throws at us that often leave us feeling broken. I am willing to meet you where you are in the change process and offer a warm and inviting therapeutic relationship to help you heal yourself.
