    How I Help my Clients:

    I characterize myself as witty, compassionate, and adventurous.  Outside of counseling I enjoy reading fiction, writing fiction and sci-fi horror, listening to podcasts (funny and work related), and doing mixed martial arts when I can even though I am still new at this.

    I integrate a mixture of different therapeutic approaches for clients. I commonly use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, Reality therapy, along with strength-based approaches. In my work it’s important for my clients to learn more about their unique strengths, goals, and specific needs. I strive to help others gain a better understanding about who they are and reinforce the abilities my clients have to be resilient. I truly believe that those who are willing to take the first step in the counseling process to get outside of their comfort zone is the moment things can begin to change in a positive direction.

    “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” -Theodore Roosevelt, stated by Brené Brown.
