About

My passion and gifting lies in creating a safe space for you to share openly and deeply, and to create an environment where you can begin the process of healing and growth. My personal approach to counseling is catered towards the belief that when my client is seen and heard, meaningful and positive change can happen! As a licensed mental health counselor, we can work together in a collaborative effort to give you the tools, insight and empowerment to create something different in your life. My style has been described as soothing, comforting and compassionate, and I draw on this to create a place where you can feel safe to share.
I utilize an eclectic and holistic approach to therapy, including EFT (emotion focused therapy), TFCBT, (trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy), motivational interviewing and DBT (dialectical behavior therapy). I am trained in EMDR, (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) which I utilize in sessions to reduce triggers and facilitate healing.
Part of my sessions may include exploring themes in your past that might be influencing negative beliefs about yourself, in the hopes that if you understand where your beliefs come from, it can help to facilitate compassion for yourself and bring positive change. I truly believe that understanding how to love yourself can lead to amazing things!
