Background/Experience/Training
I have spent the last six years working in both inpatient and outpatient treatment centers specializing in eating disorders for both children and adults. In the treatment of eating disorders I assist the client in uncovering the purpose their eating disorder serves and in doing so, empowering the client to replace the behavior with healthy coping skills.  In order to personalize every client’s experience, I utilize tools from various counseling approaches which include, Cognitive-Behavioral,  Adlerian, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Play Therapy. Additional counseling issues in which I have experience include:

  • Parenting issues

  • Depression

  • Anger

  • Social and generalized anxiety

  • Self-harm

  • Low-self-esteem

  • Grief/loss

  • Trauma

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorders

  • Behavior issues

  • Divorce

  • Blended families.
     

Personal Statement
I am passionate in helping people reclaim their life in the midst of debilitating circumstances. People need encouragement and sometimes borrowing the bravery or confidence someone else has in them is vital to taking steps towards building self-confidence in who they are today.

My formal education and training has prepared me to counsel children, teenagers, and adults. I chose to enter the counseling field because I believe there to be great meaning behind helping each person recognize their personal potential and how they can contribute and bring value to their life. I strive to create a safe haven for clients, a place where each person can discover and become the best version of themselves.

I am Christian and believe that because of this I will always strive to love, encourage, and protect. I believe people make mistakes, have dark times, and feel hopeless but “You are not what you’re going through”-Holley Gerth. I am passionate about “living life” with my community.
