My Approach to Helping
I am a nationally certified counselor and associate professional counselor working toward my full licensure. I've worked with a broad spectrum of clients and issues, and have experience working with children through seniors within a variety of settings, including individual, parent, family, and group sessions. I'm knowledgeable about both the mind-body and brain-gut connections, which is why I emphasize holistic treatment and use a variety of approaches. I also have a special passion for helping clients transform themselves and their relationships, and for helping those who seek relief and recovery from codependent and toxic relationships.
I know that feeling wholly accepted and always supported without conditions is healing and powerful in itself, so building a strong relationship with my clients takes first priority. My sessions focus on developing self-awareness and self-confidence by exploring emotions, beliefs, life history, life patterns, and behaviors; establishing meaning and purpose; providing psychoeducation; and introducing healthy coping skills and lifestyle changes.
I believe that everyone is the expert of their own inner experience and that, by creating the appropriate conditions, people are naturally able to grow. My goal is for all of my clients to leave feeling self-empowered and resilient.
