Hello and welcome to Kardia MBS. I am honored to walk along side you on your journey to self-discovery and healing. My passion, as a therapist, is to partner with you as you are working through your struggles, heal from your painful experiences, and to grow stronger in the process. Therefore, I truly believe in utilizing techniques that apply to the individual as a whole.
I am an Eclectic therapist and my main goal is to support you as you find the right tools to discover the best version of yourself and develop enriched relationships. Life can feel like you are on autopilot and it is difficult to pause. I am confident that we can find your personal and proactive path through the difficulties that you are facing. I believe that every individual has been given many unique strengths and we can collaboratively work towards your unique goal.
While I would never push my beliefs on anyone, I am a Christian and trained in spiritual integration of any beliefs. If you are searching for a spiritual component the focus could simply involve connecting the benefits of spirituality. I often find clients struggle with forgiving themselves or others, and I seek to help them reconcile this.
As a Recreational Therapist I also utilize physical activities to enhance the experience in therapy. I am able to use recreation to address the assessed needs of the individual as a means to psychological and physical health , recovery and overall well being.
I have been practicing therapy for 7 years, but spent over 16 years serving youth and families in various settings (ministry, under-served communities, substance use outpatient, and the mental health authority). I work with all ages, faiths, genders, and sexual orientations. My experience includes providing therapy to children, parents, adults, couples, and families facing different challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, marital conflict, OCD, ADHD, and behavioral problems.
The choice to enter therapy takes courage. I look forward to working with you.
First, I want to start by saying hello and welcome! My story is not very different than others who seek counseling, however the experiences are personal to each individual going through them. Therefore, I recognize that there are no two individuals exactly alike. Through my own personal life experiences, I have seen how complicated and sometimes intimidating moments provide a unique opportunity for self-discovery. So, no matter how alone, tired, or confused you feel in this chaotic storm, don’t drift away. I am here to help you, to support you and to listen to you.
In theory, I am a humanist and a spiritual person whose approach is person-centered. I believe each person is good and they have the power to make their own decision. Therefore, I embrace all points of view. It provides an incentive to becoming more aware of the mind, body and soul. As a humanist, my goal is to help you find purpose and meaning to life. We will work together in a safe, confidential, and therapeutic environment using a diverse set of counseling techniques tailored to meet your specific needs.
With seventeen years in direct-care service with clients who have substance use and co-occurring disorders, I understand the pressures and the array of issues many client’s and their families face. I have worked in a variety of settings (outpatient treatment; halfway house, jails, local mental health authority, etc.) providing individual, group and family treatment services. Populations served: Adolescent, adults, treatment for specialized women, criminal justice, and the under-served communities.
There is hope! We all aspire to be more, to feel complete, to achieve balance, and to be the best version of ourselves, so take the first step. "I can. I will. I am."
