Therapy for adults
Therapy for adults
I have been a practicing Licensed Clinical Social Worker in health/mental health for over ten years. I obtained my Bachelor’s & Master’s in Social Work at Southern Illinois University of Carbondale, with a primary focus in health and mental health. I am also anticipate completing Advance Certification of EMDR in 2024 through Kase & Co.
Outside of work you will find me repurposing furniture, escaping to the mountains for a hike, kickboxing, cooking new recipes or comedy nights in the city.
I am passionate about supporting those navigating anxiety, depression, new or ongoing health conditions, grief, loss and interpersonal relationships. I really admire my clients and see them as equals. So, naturally, I also speak with patients as capable equals. I consider myself a trauma informed therapist who presents with empathy, warmth, curiosity and compassion.
I can relate to feeling stuck, as well as being unsure exactly how to proceed in a way that felt right for me. My personal experiences in life help me naturally bring a very accepting presence as a therapist. It’s tremendous to do this work, and I have a passion to continue learning more because it is so fulfilling.
It has taken you so much courage to ask for help. Together we can navigate this New Terrain for you; giving you the tools and space to healing on your journey.
Thank you for stopping by!
Getting through the day can be a struggle and asking for help can feel scary. The stress is just too much. Seeking a professional can help you manage your anxiety and/or depression.
Together, we will bring awareness around your triggers and finding solutions to cope with your trauma while providing a safe space that is non-judgmental and client-centered. I practice from a trauma informed lens; offering EMDR as an intervention as well.
You might struggle with a depressed mood, a decreased interest in activities that once felt exciting, isolation, withdrawal, fatigue, exhaustion, anxiety, and feelings of hopelessness after a significant loss.
Poor physical health can sometimes contribute to mental health concerns. Mental health issues can also stem from the stress and isolation of being ill.
Let go of comparison, perfectionism and self-doubt and feel worthy of belonging just as you are. Identify your personal strengths and your values, to gain a more balanced sense of yourself. Let go of pleasing people and set healthy boundaries with others.
Whether you are looking for love or having challenges in your current relationship, therapy can help break down the barriers and patterns keeping you ‘stuck’ in ways that don’t serve you.
