    What makes me different:
    My goal is to provide clients with a comfortable space where they can be fully themselves and explore their unique parts. I hope to encourage clients to acknowledge that it is okay to be vulnerable, while also helping them to understand that those moments of vulnerability provide a great opportunity for self-growth and discovery.

    Favorite Quote:

    “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” – Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

    How I Help my Clients:

    I characterize myself as genuine, collaborative, and kind.  Outside of counseling, I love spending quality time at home with my husband and our two cats. I also enjoy exploring new coffee shops on weekends with friends.

    My approach to therapy is very collaborative and person-centered. I focus heavily on developing rapport with clients and allowing them to adjust to the therapeutic process. Depending on the presenting problem, I like to integrate mindfulness practices and coping mechanisms that can be used early on by the client while we are still getting to know each other. I use CBT approaches with many clients to help them to challenge some of their negative thought patterns that may be impacting various parts of their lives, including self-esteem and relationships. I also believe that the role of the family can be very important in working with many clients and their presenting problems. I like to explore the client’s support system both at home and in their community with them and facilitate discussions on how their family and community may be impacting their life situation. I am particularly passionate about working with clients who are experiencing anxiety in their day-to-day life, trauma, and big life changes.
