Resident in Counseling
I am currently working toward my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling after obtaining my bachelor’s of science in psychology in 2010. I began working in the field of counseling as an applied behavior analysis therapist with children and adolescents on the autism spectrum in 2011. In 2013, I returned to school to obtain my master’s. Now in my third and final internship, I have utilized a person-centered, cognitive behavioral approach with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, and various other mental health issues. As an in-home counselor since 2013, I have acquired a plethora of knowledge about family systems and parent-sibling relations. I have both personal and professional experience resolving conflict within the family unit. I continue to incorporate facets of CBT in my counseling as well as facets of solution-focused therapy as an approach in helping my clients achieve optimal wellness in their lives. I believe that by assisting my clients in gaining awareness and insight as to the associations between their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and by helping them identify realistic solutions to their problems, I can empower my clients to live their best lives.
