As a Licensed Professional Counselor, it is my goal to assist clients in addressing mental health and behavior issues that may be preventing them from living the life they desire. I provide a warm, collaborative, and safe environment that encourages the client to be in control of the focus and direction of therapy. I use a variety of approaches, but primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR to help clients identify and challenge negative thought and behavior patterns, as well as reprocess past trauma. I have worked in in-patient and out-patient settings with clients of all ages, including children, teens, and adults.
I have been practicing since 2016 with clients in many different settings. I have been trained in many different approaches to help serve my clients with excellence. I am committed to using a holistic approach and believe one size certainly does not fit all. I strive to meet people where they are, and walk alongside them to get to where they want to go!
