“Nothing changes, if nothing changes ~ Unknown.”
As a military spouse of 23 years, I have had the pleasure of gaining professional experience in a variety of therapeutic settings working with both military and civilian populations. My experience includes working with adults, adolescents, and children in the following areas: substance use, anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, conduct and behavior problems, self-esteem, motivation, anger, relationship and communication issues, parenting, children with special needs, intensive alternative family treatment, intensive in-home therapy, emotion regulation, and anger management.
My theoretical orientation is Choice Theory, and my preferred counseling technique is Reality Therapy. However, I understand there are times when a client’s needs will call for a different treatment modality to move them closer to their goals. In those cases, I use an integrative approach drawing from Choice Theory, Person-Centered Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
The counseling relationship is both powerful and delicate. As such, I value the time spent working with clients in a collaborative effort to achieve therapeutic goals. I believe my role in the counseling process is to help clients build and enhance the skills needed to live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.
