My Approach to Helping
My therapeutic approach is to meet clients in their current need, assist them in identifying and establishing goals and walk with them providing guidance and safety in their journey. Providing safety, allowing clients to explore their struggles completely, is of utmost importance to me. When entering into therapy with new clients I use a holistic approach which skillfully considers the mind, body, spiritual, and relational aspects at work. I incorporate various methods and techniques into practice. Treatment plans are determined on an individual basis, taking into consideration 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, allowing for greater insight and healing in your life. Those that do not choose to seek will never find.
