Hello! As your counselor, it is my goal to help you realize and actualize your personal, professional and life goals. I believe that counseling is a collaborative process, and therefore determining the length of our work together and the areas of focus should be something you are actively involved in, and should leave you feeling comfortable and hopeful. When practicing counseling, I take a client-centered and experiential approach, which believes each individual has the ability to find their answers and reach their goals. Although life can leave us feeling any number of confusing emotions, having the assistance of a trained professional may be the key to unlocking your own secrets and the start to reshaping your life.

More Info About My Practice

Polaris Counseling is centrally located in the City Park neighborhood. I offer free intake sessions, and individual counseling sessions for $90. Payment options include cash, check, credit card, and health savings accounts. While I'm not contracted with any insurance, I can provide super-bills for you to submit directly if this is allowed by your provider. A sliding scale for payment is also available during daytime hours for clients who qualify. Traditional talk-therapy or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) are both available treatment options, and together we can decide what the best approach will be for you.

My Role as a Therapist

I believe that people come to counseling for any number of reasons, and that the client is the one who is best able to determine how counseling should be used and what goals should be worked toward. Sometimes clients do not know what their goals are, but simply that they aren't happy or that their life isn't how they'd like it to be. Sometimes clients know exactly what their goals are, but don't know how to reach them or what holds them back, and sometimes clients are able to describe exactly what the problem is and yet haven't been able to change it despite numerous attempts. Wherever someone happens to fall on this spectrum, it is always a privilege for me to be a part of the process and help my clients find these answers and begin making movement towards health and growth.

Regardless of the reasons why people come see me, my goals as a counselor always include: developing a trusting therapeutic relationship in which my clients feel comfortable, safe, and free to express their truest self, helping clients develop and enhance skills for addressing their concerns, and helping clients understand and overcome the underlying reasons for undesired patterns, symptoms, or struggles in life.
