My Approach to Helping

My approach to counseling varies from client to client. I do not believe that there is a “one size fits all”, cookie cutter approach to counseling. Each and every client has different needs, strengths, and backgrounds. Therefore, it is important to tailor counseling approaches to each client. I tend to focus on client strengths and abilities as much as possible. Empowering my clients is something I can incorporate into all counseling styles! I also use a person-centered approach as much as possible in order to enhance empowerment and allow my clients to take an active role in creating and achieving their goals. I meet all clients where they are, in terms of treatment acceptance and goals in order to build strong rapport.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I like reading and I always challenge myself to continue learning. I enjoy spending time outside and enjoying all that nature has to offer!

More Info About My Practice

I completed my internship requirements, passed the National Counselor Exam, and now I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC).
