    How I Help my Clients:

    I characterize myself as compassionate, hardworking, and cooperative.  Outside of counseling, I play video games in my free time with my friends, usually involving some sort of adventure or cooperative gameplay. When we aren’t together playing games, we are playing together in person with board games and Dungeons and Dragons. In addition to this, I draw any moment I get which means my notes for classes tend to have drawing littered all over them!

    Some people feel as though the world is against them, causing one thing after another to break them down. I wish to extend my person as someone who will walk beside you while you gather the strength and courage to put their lives back together.   My aim is to help my clients through their issues by giving them a helpful perspective. I tend to use a lot of humor in my work with clients to emphasize that our work together does not always have to be hard and daunting.
