My Approach to Helping

When someone starts therapy, I want to them to feel safe and comfortable to explore those personal issues about themselves they may have been hesitant to do before. Building a rapport and being genuine allow me to use the various therapeutic techniques in my toolbox like cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused techniques, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing techniques among other therapies. These allow to engage the client and get them on a path to a happy and healthier life.

​In my personal life, I enjoy the outdoors, and like for hikes, camping, and spending time with family. I also giving back to the community by coaching recreational community softball team.
