5 years of experience

I am passionate about counseling, driven by a genuine love for helping others and a profound curiosity about emotional processes and healing. My journey in the helping profession has been diverse, including roles as a school teacher, parole officer, children's protective services investigator, state benefits eligibility worker, and brain injury therapy aide. This extensive experience has not only shaped my professional skills but has also fueled my commitment to making a positive impact within the community. Throughout my career, I have found deep fulfillment in assisting individuals through various life challenges. My diverse background equips me with a unique perspective, allowing me to connect with people from all walks of life. I believe that my calling is to help others, and my life experiences have cultivated a genuine understanding that I bring to every counseling session. In therapy with me, no subject is too small for discussion. It is my commitment to create a space where you feel not only heard but also understood, empowered, seen, and supported. My approach to therapy is rooted in a deep respect for your individual needs. I believe in collaborative, client-centered care, working with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that aligns with your unique goals and concerns. Utilizing an eclectic style of counseling, I draw from various therapeutic modalities to tailor our sessions to your specific needs. This approach allows for flexibility and adaptability, ensuring that we can explore different avenues to address your challenges and promote personal growth. The pace of our therapy is entirely guided by you. This patient-centered approach provides the time and space needed for meaningful processing and insight into your personal journey. I am here to support you every step of the way, and I look forward to embarking on this therapeutic journey together.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our initial session, we will explore the reasons that led you to seek counseling, as well as discuss your expectations, needs, and goals for our therapeutic journey together. This valuable first appointment is also an opportunity for me to gather important information about you and your family, including details about medical history, substance use, and mental health background. This comprehensive approach ensures that our sessions are tailored to your unique needs and allows for a deeper understanding of your personal context.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My therapeutic approach is centered around the intricate interplay between thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. I believe that by understanding and altering thoughts that impact behaviors, we can create meaningful changes in emotional well-being. Recognizing the interchangeability of these elements, our work together aims to bring about a holistic transformation. I value the importance of solution-focused therapy, where we collaboratively explore ways to empower you to implement positive changes. Sometimes, shifting the focus towards finding solutions can be more beneficial than dwelling solely on fixing problems. This approach allows us to work proactively towards your goals and desired outcomes. I also recognize that sometimes, clients seek the support of a nonjudgmental presence to facilitate self-exploration. In these moments, my role is to provide a safe and supportive space for you to navigate your thoughts and emotions without fear of judgment. Together, we can embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth, tailoring our approach to meet your unique needs and goals.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My strength lies in working with a diverse range of clients, spanning from preteen through adulthood. I have found my strength in guiding clients through the unique challenges they face during various life stages. My focus centers on fostering healthy relationship skills, effective communication, and coping mechanisms for issues such as depression, anxiety, and grief. I am particularly passionate about supporting individuals in developing strong interpersonal connections and enhancing their ability to communicate effectively. Whether you're a teenager navigating the complexities of adolescence or someone in the seasoned stages of life facing unique challenges, my goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for your personal growth.
