In My Own Words
I want to start by saying that I truly hold a solid belief that each and every human deserves to feel happiness, love, excitement, contentment, and ultimately to achieve their dreams, desires, goals, and best-selves! I absolutely bear a genuine passion and craving to help people. Whether that be a child struggling with ADHD, an individual struggling with depression that is limiting their overall quality of life, a couple struggling to hold the relationship together, or an entire family struggling to connect, I am devoted to seeking out and resolving the obstacles impeding their ability to live happy, healthy, and fulfilled lives. I consider it a privilege to walk alongside those that allow me to be a part of their healing journey, and work together to resolve the obstacles impending on their lives. I utilize evidence-based approaches, techniques, and skills that I have acquired throughout my journey in becoming a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, accompanying my instinctive, deep-seated eagerness for healing individuals, couples, & families, in order to facilitate our time together. As a team, we can get you to the place you want to be in life, weeding out the obstacles in your way, to attain growth, love, healing, and happiness!
I am the owner of Absolute Individual & Family Therapy, PLLC, located within Stonehaven Behavioral Health & Wellness. I have been exposed to, and have facilitated, treatment for multiple populations including children, pre-teens, teen, couples, adults, families, and the elderly. I have experience treating a wide variety of mental health issues, disturbances, and diagnoses, including behavioral irregularities, depression, anxiety, pre-marital issues, marital issues, family problems, anger, defiance, SMI, and many more.
I am genuinely interested in helping people achieve their best possible lives. I have a strong desire to become their ultimate best-selves, as well as strengthen connections, and improve overall functioning. I strive to provide a therapeutic environment, with the inclusion of a person-centered, loving, open-minded, and supportive stance. I would describe my personality as enthusiastic when helping others. I maintain a definitive consideration for all cultural and social differences. Individuals, couples, children, families, all are encouraged to come by and are welcomed! Can't wait to work with you!
My Therapeutic Approach
I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, licensed in the state of Arkansas by the Arkansas Board of Examiners in Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy (ARBOEC). I obtained my Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from John Brown University in 2018, and have been in the field as a licensed therapist soon after. My go-to model of therapy is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with an emphasis in Person Centered strategies. To bridge the gap and meet each unique individual in need, I pull from a variety of evidence-based therapies and techniques. I am a trauma and grief specialist, trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. I have experience working with children, couples, individuals, and families in a variety of settings. My ultimate goal is to help clients find their best selves, attain happiness, healing, growth, and so much more!
