Health and Healing Therapy LLC
During the first twenty-five years of our lives, we go through vast growth and change. With each age and developmental stage, we are faced with unique stressors and challenges. Sometimes we master these challenges and changes, and sometimes we experience difficulty or obstacles and can’t figure out the best direction for us to take or how to navigate moving forward. When this happens, it’s a sign that we can benefit from and may need some help and support.

Whether you’re having difficulty mastering social anxiety, figuring out friendships and relationships, handling all the pressures on your shoulders, navigating “adulting” or the teenage years, struggling with self esteem, liking yourself, or managing depression, anxiety, or uncomfortable feelings, therapy can help. Therapy is a place where you can take the time and have the space to focus on yourself when life becomes difficult.

In the beginning of therapy, our first task will to be building a relationship. We will be new to each other, so it will take some time for you to trust, feel comfortable, and secure with me. When that happens, we will begin to form a kind of team so we can collaborate together to help you with what you’re struggling with. Most importantly, I want to create a comfortable, secure, and trusting space and environment for you. One goal of mine is to help you begin to feel that when we meet you are in a space absent of judgement and instead filled with acceptance, compassion, and support..

I’m a good listener, so I will certainly be listening while you share more about yourself. I always want the individuals I work with to feel supported enough to voice their concerns, feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and hopes. Our first session will include you sharing some details of your life, including what is happening in your life that led you to seek supportive therapy. I will also inquire as to what you hope to work on, what you value in life, what you would like to change, what you imagine your life may look like, and what you may feel once you are there. We will want to gather an idea and direction of what you strive to think, believe, feel, and experience, and what you want to be doing in your life once you meet your goals.

We will work together to develop an understanding of the areas you are struggling with along with identifying your strengths. Then we will create a few initial goals we can work on together that will help you begin to feel better. I believe that it is necessary to work together to figure out these goals in order to form a clear picture of where you want to get to in order to begin seeing change within yourself and within your life. Determining together what you need and want will be a continuous process, and it will guide our work — it will help you move forward to get to where you want to be.
Bio
From a young age, I knew that I wanted to work in the helping field. When I was in high school, I was one of those teens that other teens sought out to talk to about what was stressing them out. Even back then, I was a good listener, and I knew how to give support and encouragement to others. Those experiences were rather defining, and they helped guide me to realize I wanted to become a therapist. I figured out what to study in college and then went onto graduate school and studied clinical psychology.

Education/Training
I have been providing support therapy services for the past five years. I have worked with children who where challenged with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as with children who dealt with other disorders such as Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In addition I worked at a university counseling center where I was able to work with emerging adults who were adjusting to college life, struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship stressors, independence, beginning their futures, and experiencing new life challenges. And finally before joining Health and Healing Therapy, I provided individual therapy, group therapy, and community supportive services to emerging adults and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, substance use disorders, co-occurring disorders, and other severe and persistent mental illnesses.
