My Approach to Helping
My helping approach focuses on meeting each client in their unique need. Providing a safe space is of utmost importance to me. This allows clients to experience growth and healing even when growing pains are present. When entering therapy with a new client I use a holistic approach which skillfully considers the mind, body, spiritual, and relational aspects at work. Clients establish personal goals, while I help them become attainable. Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis taking into consideration the symptoms, evidence-based methods, and the client's personality and preferences.

My Role as a Therapist
I believe my role as a therapist is walking alongside others who are struggling. Meeting them where they are in life, and helping them identify and accomplish personal goals.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
I understand the overwhelming influence of a sinful world, resulting in pain and agony for so many. However, I am also aware of the freedom that follows healing. Living in that freedom provides me with the hope that so many of my clients cannot see or feel for themselves. I love being able to bring hope into a painful situation, trusting that healing will follow their work as well.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Going to therapy is a sign of great strength. It is a willingness to explore yourself and your experiences which allows for greater insight and healing. Those that do not seek will never find.
