My Approach to Helping
Deciding to seek counseling is a major step in anyone's life. Finding the right counselor can be even harder. My hope as a counselor is to bring myself, experiences and education to the room to help you. I attempt to create a safe, judgement free space to provide unconditional support for whatever it is that may be bringing you into counseling; meeting you where you are at and staying with you each step of the way. My clinical interests include anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, relationship issues, self-esteem, severe and persistent mental illness, and LGBTQ+ issues.
I approach counseling through a person-centered therapy lens. I incorporate a variety of other skills and techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, and feminist therapy. I was trained by the EMDR institute and am working towards certification. I was also trained in hypnotherapy by the Institute for Advanced Counselor Training.
I believe in empowering my clients to develop a better understanding of themselves, freeing them to live a life of inner peace. Your desires and goals guide the therapy in the direction that best suits your desired outcomes.
