"This is a beginning; change is difficult. It's strength, not weakness, to seek help and make changes. Learning how to see our behaviors from a different perspective is valuable. Healing often comes through verbalizing our feelings. You will feel heard, respected, validated, receive constructive feedback and gain greater insight and understanding in a safe, non-judgmental environment. I focus on your strengths as a means to help facilitate change and promote independence. I am a very down-to-earth person and I am often told by my clients that it's easy to talk and relate to me."

"Life is full of bumps and hardships. It is part of the human experience. I believe counseling provides a meaningful exploration of your mental, physical, and spiritual well-being in order for you to navigate these issues with more self-awareness and capability. I view counseling as a process in which you, the client, and I, the counselor, establish rapport and trust one another in order to explore the self, come together as a team to examine presenting problems, develop solutions together, and work towards achieving goals to create wellness and improve your overall quality of life. I provide a counseling space free of judgment. "

"I see counseling as a process in which the client and counselor, having come to understand and trust one another, work as a team to explore and define present problem situations, develop future goals for an improved life and work in a systematic fashion toward realizing those goals. I approach counseling from an integrative approach based on the client's needs and the nature of the presenting issues. I believe that change occurs through the development of a collaborative working relationship and through changing negative thoughts and behaviors that affect changes in mood."
