Counseling Approach


Welcome, brave one. I’m so glad you’re here. I would be honored to journey with you as you find healing from your past, freedom in your present, and joy for your future. I am committed to building an environment of hope, safety, trust, and empathy so we can explore your thoughts, feelings, and needs. Through these discussions, I will help you feel understood, grow in your own understanding of your struggle, identify themes and patterns of thoughts and behaviors, and develop greater emotional awareness. I wholeheartedly believe that people possess the ability to grow and change and counseling is an excellent place to work towards lasting growth. I see counseling as a collaborative effort where you and I will work together to establish goals and find resolution as I provide helpful resources while offering encouragement, insight, education, empathy, and hope along the way.
