I know how important it is to have someone who will listen. I enjoy hearing others life experience, walking alongside them in vulnerable moments, and having authentic moments of honesty, openness, and healing. The goal of counseling is not knowing everything at the start (or even the finish!) but being willing to try, willing to learn, and willing to share. I enjoy helping others gain understanding about themselves and their world, make progress towards their life goals, and feel more stable in their actions and direction. I look forward to helping you with skills and knowledge that you will act on between sessions and beyond.
