My Approach to Helping
I come from a compassionate, strengths-based perspective and provide a person-centered approach to help encourage and support others in need of extra guidance to help them achieve their goals. I truly enjoy being part of someone's next step in their journey. I would love to help support and encourage you in your next step in life, wherever that may lead. I believe there is still hope in any situation and place in life to find the path necessary to move forward, and helping you build the strength within to get there!
The therapies I use: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (Mindfulness), Strengths-Based, and Brief Therapy
In my spare time I enjoy singing and playing my guitar, spending time with friends and family, and enriching my life through my faith and personal improvement goals.
