Training and Credentials:
I am passionate about helping others navigate relationships and life changes by honing in on strengths and resources. With an understanding of the role of context and societal factors, I seek to empower individuals, couples, and families to take an active role in achieving and maintaining holistic well-being through strengths-based and solution-focused therapies. As a dance and yoga instructor, I am also a believer in the power of expression, art, and movement as a healing modality. Areas of particular interest for me are those involving self-esteem, self-worth, body dysmorphia, body image, and eating disorders. I am also passionate about working with marginalized populations, including members of the LGBTQ+ community. I am under the supervision of Becky Smith, MS, LPC.
You would go to the doctor for a rash, this is just another part of your body that needs to be taken care of.
We have more kids than ever receiving care and it is largely because of your work with families and your follow-through! I really appreciate having the Mental Health Navigator position because so many more of our students are receiving therapy.
As a therapist, having the School Based Mental Health available for students is very important in many aspects. School is an area where children spend a great amount of their time and the schools are able to work with the therapists to help in any areas that they may be struggling in. The schools have all been very open with working with me as a therapist and the children are able to still get services that are needed for either home or school issues without having to miss more time at school since the therapy is able to be done right at the school settings. Being able to provide this service for families is a great asset for everyone involved.
As a parent having the School Based Mental Health available has been very helpful with my child. The process has gone smoothly from the initial contact to being able to choose a therapist that may work best with my child to the therapist working directly with my child. This is also helpful that they are able to come directly to my child at the school so that they are missing less school and I as a parent need to miss less work as well. Overall the whole experience has been a positive one for both myself and my child.
School-based mental health services allow a child to receive much needed services regularly without the inconvenience of scheduling around after school activities or parents having to take time off work.
Cardinal Care takes the frustration out of making the initial connection with a mental health therapist and allows for services to occur in both the office setting or, if appropriate, the school setting.
