It took a lot of work but it was worth it. I earned a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. During an extensive internship at Ridgeview Institute, I worked with individuals suffering from various addictions and mental health disorders in their inpatient and outpatient programs.
Shortly after completing my internship, I started working at MARR (addiction treatment center) and at DBT South as a DBT Therapist. I have completed formal training in DBT through Behavioral Tech.
After practicing behavioral therapy for several years, I researched other modalities that have scientific evidence. As a result, I became a certified Hypnotherapist and Brain Spotting therapist. These modalities are helpful with individuals who cannot find the words to express what they are going through on an emotional level or struggling with, substance abuse, unwanted thoughts or behaviors.
I am also dedicated to staying current and growing as a professional. It means when you work with me, you’re working with a counselor who is up-to-date and committed to helping you reach your goals.
