    How I Help my Clients:

    I characterize myself as compassionate, curious, and good-humored.  Outside of counseling I enjoy spending time outside in nature which rejuvenates my mind and body, and if I’m not knee-deep in reading for my studies, you’ll find me at the gym!

    My approach is Person-Centred, so this means the client is in the driving seat and I follow their lead. I trust my clients know what they want, and I enable them to feel capable to reach their goals. I use Solution-Focused techniques to highlight client’s strengths and help them find the deeper meaning of what is important to them, and some Mindfulness techniques to help raise awareness of what is happening in the present moment.
