I have worked as a Crisis Intervention Therapist for the past three years in Oregon. Serving men, women, and children experiencing significant life changes; ultimately causing depression, suicidal and/or homicidal ideations, and/or psychosis. This job entailed working in various settings such as the hospital, court system, community, client’s personal residence, jail, and an office space at the health department. Treatment varied based on their individual needs and consisted of referrals, solution-focused treatment, and trauma-informed care.
I completed two internship placements in Texas and prior to beginning my professional career. The first was at an outpatient day treatment program, working with 5-10 patients in a group setting, for several weeks. My second placement was at an Independent School District with K-12 students, meeting with them for individualized therapy and treatment. Prior to college, I was a Client Advocate for two years at a shelter that housed women and children fleeing domestic violence.
"Experiencing trauma or severe life stressors often clouds our ability to differentiate our feelings and emotions. My passion and goal is to meet you where you’re at so we can not only discuss what your current and/or past experiences are, but what steps can be made to create change"
