My Approach to Helping
I love to utilize theories that work best for my individual clients. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and person-centered therapy are the theories that I tend to draw from the most frequent. In order to get the most out of counseling, I believe it is important for the client and I to establish a strong rapport. Before any work can be done, it is most important that the client knows that I am listening and care about what they are talking about in the session.
While in college, I played both volleyball and softball. In addition to continuing my love for those sports, I love to read, hike, watch movies, and get outside as much as possible.
