I believe that everyone has special gifts, abilities and strengths. It some cases, stressful or traumatic experiences can cloud the person’s view of seeing those gifts clearly. My mission is to walk alongside clients and empower them to so that they can see the resiliency they’ve always had, reclaim their gifts and abilities, and see their full potential of who they can become. Together, we can make the steps necessary to get them there.
I am a Licensed Social Worker, currently working under the supervision of Toni Lovell, LCSW, LCAC. I work from a trauma-informed, strengths-based, client-centered lens. I am passionate about working with young adults and adults to find freedom from trauma and gain skills to navigate:
- relationship and family of origin issues
- major life transitions
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) through EMDRIA. My approach is integrative and tailored to the unique needs of the individual. I utilize a combination of modalities such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Narrative Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I offer office-based or virtual services and would love to be a part of your story. Balance Works is conveniently located in downtown Ft. Wayne and offers free parking.
