I characterize myself as empathic, authentic, and loyal. Outside of counseling, when the weather breaks, I love nature walks, especially near the lake. I am a Creative who appreciates and encourages all forms of self-expression! My favorite creative outlet is cooking and creating new recipes for my family. Fun fact about me: I’ve finally achieved how to meditate without quieting my mind!
My clients will learn to identify WHAT they need, HOW intentional their behavior is, and WHY they make certain choices in life. Together, we can develop a client/therapist relationship in a safe, supportive space that offers an outlet to express emotions, inner thoughts, fears, and dreams. No one is alone in desiring more from life, wanting something different, or even hoping things stay the same. You cannot pour into your relationships, family, job, or responsibilities if you are empty. Most of my work with clients is grounded in Reality Therapy, however I do utilize an eclectic approach when individualizing treatment planning specific to client goals.
