“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
Brene Brown, Dare to Lead
Being empathic and nonjudgmental is an essential part of my therapeutic approach because it’s important for my clients to know I will always treat them as individuals and it is important for my clients to feel safe.
Change and life transitions can be difficult at times no matter how big or how small the transition is. I am passionate about working with young adults, college students, couples and people going through challenging life changes. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, and life transitions and adjustments in life, communication, and relationships.
In my day-to-day life, I value relationships and meeting people where they are, and walking alongside my clients throughout their journey. I show unconditional regard and support to my clients by being accepting and creating a safe environment to express themselves when it comes to their mental health, regardless of what they may be going through. I aim to create a space where clients who come from all walks of life, race, culture, beliefs, sexual identities, and preferences can feel at ease and express themselves freely. My office is a safe place to share your thoughts and vulnerabilities, and authentically be yourself without the fear of judgment.
My primary theoretical approach is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I will also use Person-centered therapy techniques to challenge negative cognitions and identify clients’ strengths, as well as help clients develop a set of tools to enable them to cope in tough situations. In my personal life outside of counseling, I enjoy spending time with friends, family, creating new memories and exploring different food interests, and pursuing my creativity in different avenues. I look forward to working with you.
