About Me

I have been counseling for over 6 years at a college counseling center briefly and later at a community mental health center and I also have a lot of life experience. I went back to school at age 55 to pursue a life long dream of becoming a counselor.

My first community mental health center job provided me with the opportunity to build the school based therapy program with 13 elementary schools of the county.

My work with teens and adolescents focuses solely on trauma work. Of the three modalities I use to help people recover from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, two are helpful with younger clients. Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior therapy, [TFCBT] which is designed specifically for children up to age 19. The second modality is Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing [EMDR] which works well with adults and adolescents.

I have co-faclitated a grief group. I have used expressive arts therapy, using therapeutic journal writing, dream work and drawing to help people access the creative solving parts of their brains; the part that can help you solve your emotional stumbling blocks. I am a big fan of teaching Dialectical Behavior Therapy, [DBT] and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, [CBT] skills to help people with depression and anxiety move forward in their lives.

If you decide to have your son or daughter work with me, my main focus on this age population is to help people who are struggling to recover from past trauma(s).

Amoret has been like an emotional lifeboat in the stormy waters of my life. She is professional and friendly; making the sessions feel less like a doctor's appointment and more like a confidential talk with a good friend.
