My Approach to Helping
I work with individuals from the age of 14 and up struggling with issues of self-worth, trauma, grief, interpersonal conflict, and those who feel stuck in life.
I believe therapeutic change happens through building a relationship with my clients that is based on trust and acceptance. I am person-centered and strength-based and adjust my treatment methods to fit my client's needs. My goal is to provide a safe place for my clients to experience being, to examine their negative beliefs and thoughts and re-establish healthier ones, and to remember there is always hope. My focus is to work with my clients on their goals, to stand alongside them during the pains of personal growth, and support them in becoming a healthier and happier human being.
Making that first call to a counselor who you don't yet know can be a big hill to climb over. I want to offer a safe space in which I provide acceptance, genuine interest in you as a person, and humor when called for. I look forward to meeting with you!
