My specialties include depression, careers, work stress/workplace issues, loss/grief, and caregiver stress/support. I have 15 years of experience in the mental health field.
I completed my Master of Social Work (MSW) with a concentration in Physical/Mental Health at Roberts Wesleyan College. I am also certified in Clinical Supervision. One of mystrengths as a therapist is helping others establish very clear and realistic goals for themselves, both large and small. Using tools such as SMART goals, Mindfulness and Awareness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Motivational Interviewing to teach ways to move forward methodically and clearly and to make progress. I provide support as long as it is needed to help people achieve their goals.
An initial session with me will be all about building a rapport and trust while gathering enough information to inform your path moving forward. I will ask different questions about your reason for reaching out, health history, family history, and personal history in an effort to gain a complete picture of what may be going on that is impacting your need for therapy. Once the initial assessment is complete, I like to talk about what you are expecting from therapy and where you would like to see yourself at the end of your process. From there we work together on identifying one or more long-term goals that are personal to you. We can then work together on breaking this goal into several smaller goals that are specific, measurable, and achievable, noting your confidence level in each one and your readiness to change among other things. In doing so you and Iare able to identify a starting point that will be motivational and therefore likely to be successful. My approach will include occasional homework assignments as well. If change is what you are looking for, then you are in the right place.
