Most people begin therapy because they feel they don’t know what to do, or they may even feel helpless. So first, I want you to know that reaching out was the best first step. As we work together, I look forward to learning more about you and what's bothering your everyday life. It is my goal to support, guide, explore and empower you to make your life stressors less overwhelming as we work through your therapeutic goals together.

Have you been feeling invalidated, like no one is taking the time to really listen to what you're going through? The most important focus I have for my clients is to ensure I meet them right where they are at, and they feel safe and validated. I provide therapy to help clients across the lifespan achieve a sense of empowerment and motivation. I believe that in order to change problematic patterns, my clients have to have a foundation that begins with validation and encouragement. Working toward therapy goals can feel overwhelming, so it is imperative that my clients know I will be there every step of the way.

Life can bring difficult times. These may be financial, death, loss of a job or even loss of our independence through illness or accidents, as well as school or marital issues. All of us have our mountains to climb and the mountains at times seem overwhelming to us. This is where counseling comes in. Experience in life's issues and the hard times that can bring us to feeling we will never get to the top of the mountain are where an experienced counselor and counselling skills can help.

I think of life as a cross-country road trip taking us on an adventure. The adventure can be exciting but also scary at times. We make choices on where we wish to go. However, the ride can be smooth or shaky and take us through dark tunnels, across bridges, rivers, and hills. I'm your assistant navigator offering support, encouragement, empowerment, but also challenging you forward towards your chosen destination(s). Together we navigate through any obstacles in order to help you achieve your goals and discover the life you want to live.

My ideal client is someone who may be struggling with motivation, feeling "stuck", going through some life stressors that can be overwhelming. Their needs can range from needing to talk out a plan of action to get to school, facing some of their fears and stressors and the desire to want to make a change. Change can be scary and uncertain which I come into the picture as your therapist, confidant, and professional companion. My ideal client may be fearful and uncertain but will know that I will be with them every step in this journey.

Clients come to me and receive compassionate care without negative judgment as a means to make meaning of the events of their lives. That new understanding, gained in a supportive coaching relationship with the therapist, becomes the foundation for positive change. Open and self-aware clients tend to want validation of their thoughts and challenges to what hasn't worked. Skeptical clients tend to desire safety and assurance that someone is on their side. Regardless of the category, clients tend to get what they need from one session to the next.
