I am a licensed certified social worker. I earned a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Arkansas. I have worked with college students as they navigated issues such as life transitions, anxiety, depression, difficult relationships, trauma, and grief. I have worked as a school based therapist with children and adolescents struggling with issues related to behavioral difficulties, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, dysfunctional family environments, and adjustment disorders. I currently provide psychotherapeutic services for adolescents (11+) and adults. I have had the great honor of being trained by William Symes of Fayetteville since 2015 in psychodynamic psychotherapy, Jungian Analytic techniques, Gestalt psychotherapy, James Masterson psychotherapy, Object Relations, Erickson Strategic Theory, and Mindfulness techniques. In addition, I often incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy techniques when appropriate. I like using an integrative approach to therapy that is tailored to each individual's needs. My goal is to build a strong therapeutic relationship in a safe and comfortable environment. My office is located in the heart of Fayetteville at 19 E. Mountain St., right off of the beautiful downtown square.
It is true that personal growth is sometimes a lot of hard work. It can feel painful at times, but so does being stuck in a place of suffering. The therapeutic process should also be incredibly empowering and energizing. I believe that if you are here reading this, you are ready.
