Our curriculum is based on the current research that examines why people steal and what helps them change these patterns of behavior. We will explore impulsive stealing and compulsive stealing, which is also referred to as kleptomania. Our course is based on accountability and is far more interactive than alternative programs, with a personalized approach to examining:

  • Why participants found themselves stealing,
  • What their thinking and beliefs are around theft,
  • Possible co-occurring mental health or substance abuse issues,
  • Effective stress management and life management techniques,
  • What to do when one's values and morals don't match their behaviors
  • Research-based treatment recommendations for impulsive and compulsive stealing.

About the instructor

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Oregon. I am passionate about helping clients find their strength, feel empowered and confident, and discover meaning and purpose in their lives. Therapy with me is client-centered, comes from a holistic perspective, and is a nonjudgmental and collaborative space. My therapeutic approach is integrative: I work in session to help you address emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and interpersonal relationships, and I use mindfulness and other tools that many people have found to help them cope with challenging life circumstances. I provide therapy for individuals, families, and couples, and have worked with clients bringing a wide range of issues to therapy, including anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, grief, family conflict, life transitions, stress, behavioral addictions, and most general counseling issues. If you are feeling bothered with any of these issues, or any other challenge in life, let’s talk about it.

About the instructor

I believe that the counseling relationship is a powerful and healing connection. Everyone has the capacity within themselves to grow, develop, and integrate healing into their daily lives. My intention is to use this relationship to create a safe and trusting space to explore client goals. I draw from a person-centered, existential, and gestalt theoretical orientation. I enjoy exploring purpose, meaning, cognitive distortions, and quite simply being present within the client’s worldview. I also focus on highlighting client’s strengths, resilience, and developing healthy coping tools. Everyone comes from a unique background which shapes the way they interact with their environment. My overall goal is to empower, connect, support, and create long-lasting wellness. Finally, I appreciate the power of nature, mindfulness, and spirituality in the healing process.
