I view the counseling process as an agent of change where the counselor and the client(s) have mutually agreed to engage in work towards agreed upon goals to benefit the client. This relationship is built on mutual respect, specifically regarding the client’s worldview, beliefs, and autonomy. My theoretical orientation is eclectic and includes components of cognitive-behavioral theory, person-centered perspectives, and positive psychology. In my practice, I utilize strengths-based approaches and techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy.

There are many reasons why someone may find themselves seeking a better way to engage with life. Maybe stress is feeling overwhelming and the strategies you have used in the past just aren't cutting it anymore. Maybe you find yourself in the throes of addiction and struggling with breaking the addictive cycle that keeps you from finding that better way. Because you are seeking, you have strength within you that is important to be recognized. People that find me during their search are typically those that find themselves in the aforementioned struggles and need support recognizing their strength to overcome their challenges.

Life can be hard sometimes. We experience things that are often difficult to put into words and shoulder burdens that are much too heavy to bear alone. I want to make the process of counseling approachable and meaningful. Counseling can be thought-provoking, enlightening, and even fun. It is a time for laughing, a time for crying, and a time for expression and reflection. Above all, counseling sessions are YOUR time for which I pledge my undivided attention. You can dump the “pieces of the puzzle” out on the table, and we can figure this out together.
