My Approach to Helping

I allow the people I work with to influence the pace for counseling sessions, working together to determine their unique challenges, developing goals and defining how we will meet those goals. My philosophy of helping comes from a character strengths, virtues, values, total health & wellness, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive perspective. I help people focus on what they are doing right not what is wrong with them. I believe that actions, thoughts, beliefs, and values are guided by many factors that are unique to each individual. I practice existential, mindful, cognitive, behavioral, emotional, and motivational therapies. I work with adults and adolescents in individual, couples, family, and group therapy.

Quenza has a chat feature which allows secure text communication between me and my client. Quenza also has a journal (notes) feature for me and my clients to record daily reflections and notes from sessions.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love watching people realize they have the solution to their problems. I love watching people realize what they have control over and what they don't. I love watching people change the unhelpful ways they think, feel, and behave. I love watching people advocate for their needs and break down societal and cultural barriers impeding their health and wellness. I love watching people grow into the best versions of themselves they can possibly be. I love taking the journey with them as their witness, guide, confidant, and trip companion.

My Therapy Focus

I adhere to an integrated approach to helping. My therapy and coaching clients both get access to my health and wellness program. This program changes and improves an individuals view of their total health and wellness. The program addresses several areas of a person's life. The domains of health and wellness covered in this program include: physical; mental; emotional; spiritual; shadow; family; interpersonal; sexual; occupational; social; cultural; and environmental. The program includes philosophies from many different scientific and academic communities.
