The resiliency and recovery skills young people develop today will carry them through life's adversity. In the era of Covid 19, social unrest, and financial strain people are more stressed than they have been in recent history. Young people are particularly vulnerable. They can become stuck. While we have labels for these things, the bottom-line is they get stuck and can become unstuck. I am s seasoned helper who has been in the mental health field for over 30 years. I have worked with all age groups and diagnoses. I have worked in hospitals, clinics and in the community. I have a strong background in addiction, trauma and life transitions. I have made a life of breaking out of the boxes and labels, professionally and personally. I am well versed in clinical and professional approaches; but my strengths are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing/Change Theory, Solution-Focused Therapy and EMDR. But, I believe there are many ways to getting unstuck found in ones own personal curiosity, creativity, and experiences. I am interested in those I serve being able to describe their experiences in the own words, through their own expression, and though their own lived experience. I believe a person's history is social, cultural, spiritual, and emotional. I believe healing comes from a personal journey and making sense of things.
