My Approach to Helping
I strive to create a space where clients feel fully seen and deeply cared for, with the goal of coming alongside clients to address the roots of current problems. This includes identifying needs and goals, cultivating insight into patterns, and empowering with tools and information. I work collaboratively to address holistic change holistically for each client. Clients often describe me as safe, deeply present, and insightful.
I received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Washington and Lee University and her Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Denver Seminary. I also have a minor in Art History and enjoy working to find beauty in things. I have counseled clients since 2016 in a range of settings, and works primarily with individuals from age eight on up as well as premarital counseling. Clients often come in to work on issues around grief and loss, anxiety, depression, parenting issues, relationships, infertility, and life transitions. I especially have a heart for working with all types of trauma including relational hurts, emotional abuse, spiritual wounds, and medical events.
I draw from a variety of techniques, depending on each client’s goals. For clients interested in a faith-based approach, I also enjoy employing a Christian worldview lens, having been trained in integrating this into counseling.
One of my goals for you is to be able to be present and find enjoyment in your own life, even when difficult things happen. I view the therapeutic relationship as a powerful tool, and would be honored to hear your story and walk alongside you in this season, whatever it may entail.
