About My Clients
My clients are generally within the range of adolescents, young adults, and middle-aged humans struggling to find meaning and purpose in the midst of new and overwhelming situations. They are facing trauma and need a safe space to be honest about what they’re facing in order to discern the most healing way forward. Anxiety, depression, PTSD, are completely welcome. Also have a unique niche in relating to and connecting with those with chronic health issues and unexpected illness.
My Background and Approach
My approach is to create an environment clients can experience and build a supportive, secure attachment that will give them strength and courage to be fully who they are in the midst of crazy situations. I also use aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients identify thought patterns or lies being believed that may be hindering growth and progress. I have a lot of experience in working with underserved populations (and love it), and those with chronic mental and physical illness.
Experience: I completed a clinical internship working for a nonprofit providing psychotherapy to those unable to leave their homes due to illness while receiving my Master’s degree in Social Work with a concentration in Behavioral Health. I also spent three years working at a food pantry where I helped develop a mentoring program & provided therapy before spending time working as a middle school counselor. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate working under a supervisor I meet with monthly until completing the 3000hrs of clinical supervision needed in WI to work independently as a therapist without supervision. I have also completed a number of pain management therapy programs myself.
