“We are not victims of our biology or circumstances. How we react to the events and circumstances of life can have an enormous impact on our mental and even physical health.” ― Caroline Leaf
Jasmine has a passion for working with children (6+), adolescents, and their families. She is dedicated to building the capacity of every client to maximize their potential to lead positive change. She seeks to provide a safe space for children and teens to feel seen and heard, understood and valued, and motivated and empowered to reach their goals. Jasmine works primarily with those struggling with various challenges including low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, ADHD, anger management, social skills, divorce, and family transition.
Jasmine takes a holistic therapeutic approach because although the mind and body are sometimes thought of as being separate entities, she realizes that mental health has the potential to impact your physical health and vice versa. With a holistic approach, she is able to focus on the whole person (mind, body, spirit) and life experiences to help clients achieve overall well-being and health. Jasmine offers counseling from a Christian perspective for clients and families who choose to incorporate their faith into their counseling experience. She begins each therapy relationship by helping the client and their family identify their therapeutic goals. Jasmine primarily utilizes cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), exposure and response prevention (ERP), behavior therapy, parent management training, expressive arts therapy, and emotionally focused family therapy.
Jasmine received her Master of Arts in Christian Counseling from Oral Roberts University. She is a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP). Prior to working at Summit, she provided in-home and school-based individual and family therapy for children and adolescents to address a variety of mental health concerns. In addition to therapy, she provided her clients with resources in their community. She was a Celebrate Recovery teacher, for children (4-12 years old) who come from dysfunctional families characterized by conflict, violence, and substance abuse issues.
Outside of therapy, Jasmine enjoys going for walks, swimming, playing tennis, and spending time with family and friends.
