Therapy that's more than just "talk"

Very early in my mental health career, I realized words are often not enough.  It can be really hard to put our experiences into words. When we are stressed and overwhelmed, we may not even have the words to express what we feel.  Other times we find ourselves talking in circles without finding a solution.  I have known a lot of people who think counseling isn't for them for this very reason.  You do not need to know what to say or where to start.

 

---You are the expert in your story,

I'm an expert in helping you re-write it---

 

Everyone is different and comes from their own unique experiences. My approach is collaborative: to help you identify your goals and create a plan to help you meet them. I know that each person comes to therapy with a story, and I work to create a non-judgmental space where your story is respected and honored. While therapy is about acknowledging the past, it must also be about moving forward. I have a unique set of tools to help you become unstuck, and find your way forward.

 

The details:

I am a licensed independent Marriage and Family Therapist in both the states of Ohio and California. In 2012,  I received my graduate degree from California Institute in Integral Studies.  I am also a Registered Drama Therapist (RDT) and a member of the North American Drama Therapy Association (NADTA). This means I am specially trained and certified in action-oriented techniques that can get you out of your head and moving forward faster.

 

I also have training and background in the following therapeutic approaches:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Solution-Focused Therapy

  • Motivational Interviewing

  • Mindfulness Approaches

  • Somatic/Body Approaches

  • Child-Centered Play Therapy (CCPT)

  • Family Systems Therapy

  • Drama Therapy Process and Technique

  • Advanced Integrative 5-Phase Model of Drama Therapy

  • Art Therapy and Expressive Art Therapies

 

As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am trained to diagnose and treat a range of mental health challenges.  In my career I have developed a special focus on anxiety, panic, depression, grief, trauma, addiction, living with chronic illness, teen issues, and the many challenges in finding balance between work, life and family. Additionally I am certified as a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional for children and adolescents (CCATP-CA), meaning i have particular experience and training to meet the growing epidemic of childhood and teen anxiety.
