My Approach to Helping

Therapeutic Approach: As a Licensed Associate Counselor, I am passionate about helping clients find their voice and realize their strength. I will strive to create a safe place that will help my clients feel safe and heard. I will creatively utilize many different forms of therapy techniques to enable my clients to reach their treatment goals with some of them coming from: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Strength-based, Mindfulness, and Motivational Interviewing.

Hobbies: I spend my free time reading, spending time with friends, and going to wineries.

Education: I graduated with my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Alliance Graduate School of Counseling in New York City. My time in New York City has given me a lot of experience working with marginalized youth and families with a variety of behavioral and substance use issues. I also have supervised experience working with clients going through a difficult point in their lives by helping them find creative coping skills to make it through the night.
