My Approach to Helping

Carl Rogers emphasized unconditional positive regard, empathy, and congruence. I also think these are important parts of a therapeutic relationship and therapeutic growth. I also understand that sometimes a little more is needed and can provide other evidence-based practices including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution focused brief therapy (SFBT), narrative therapy, and motivational interviewing.

In my spare time I love to cuddle with my two dogs, Juno and Harley. While cuddling I love to catch up on movies and books. When not at home or working I love spending time with my friends and going on adventures.
