Licensed Professional Counselor - In Training (WI)
Hello there! I graduated with my Bachelor's degree from UW-Superior in Social Work and my MSEd degree at UW-Stout in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor - In Training in Wisconsin (5198-226). I am completing clinical training toward a license in Professional Counseling and practicing under the supervision of Maija Swanson, MSW, LICSW, LADC, in pursuit of independent clinical license.
Though I do have interest in working with all ages and backgrounds, I am most interested in working with adults, individuals, and couples. I aim to provide a collaborative, comfortable, safe, and supportive environment. Some common approaches I tend to use include cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, person-centered care, and psychodynamic theory.
I am also trained in the use of Brainspotting to treat trauma and stuck emotions.
Some concerns I have previously worked with people on include:
mood and anxiety disorders personality disorders depression anxiety and fear trauma
grief and loss addiction substance use self-esteem relationship issues life transitions domestic violence anger management
I look forward to meeting you and assisting in your new journey to a better you!
