I have experience working in the areas of depression, anxiety, trauma, bullying and other school related issues, substance abuse, and more.
I work with children (middle-school age and up), teens, adults, and families.
Some evidence-based treatments I utilize in my sessions (if/when applicable) are CBT, TF-CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Strength-Based approaches, and the Seeking Safety Model.
I do not currently accept insurance; however, please check with your insurance provider to see if there would be any out-of-network reimbursement available to you for any of our therapy sessions. Crosswinds also accepts debit, credit, or HSA/FSA cards as forms of payment. The rate per therapy session is $130/hour with a Licensed Therapist.
Gaining Confidence to Overcome
Life feels difficult. Maybe things from your past keep showing up, your anxiety or addiction is weighing you down, or you’re facing a challenging situation and need support. My therapeutic approach is driven by a Fredrick Douglas quote from the early 1900s: “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Addressing past trauma, uncovering hidden hurts, and empowering my clients to want something better despite the cards they were given has become the foundation of my practice.
I am a Counselor, Social Worker, and Mentor who has walked down the road less traveled to instill hope into at-risk youth, downward men, and recently released ex-felons from correctional institutions by offering them the essential tools to be successful in all areas of life. As a trained mediator, I am proficient in conflict resolution and an effective mentor to youth and adults. After dropping out of high school in the late 80s and earning my GED in prison, I returned to school in 2010 to advance my education. I earned an associate degree in Criminal Justice, a bachelor’s in Social Work, and then a master’s degree in Social Work in 2018. I am currently serving my community as an advocate for social injustice.
I am passionate about the work I do and how I get to help others. I like telling my clients and colleagues, “I don’t have a job but a passion that pays well.” We can work together to overcome the difficulty in your life. Hope is possible. Schedule an appointment today.
