There are times in life where we can use an empathic, nonjudgmental listener who can remain present with us as we explore issues that are bothering us. This is why many people come to counseling, and if you are considering speaking with me as you explore your counseling options, I can assure you that you will be met with warmth, unconditional positive regard, empathy, and authenticity.
I began my practice because I believe that all individuals have the capacity to grow, heal, and transform, and that we all have a deep well of insight that we can learn to tap into. It is my honor to be a collaborative partner working side by side with my clients in this process. I am dedicated to helping my clients explore their unique challenges and life situations so that they can uncover joy, contentment, and ease, as well as find solutions to unresolved issues. I encourage my clients to look within themselves to find the strengths, resources, and inner wisdom to navigate whatever challenges may be present for them. I believe that we are all capable of becoming our truest versions of ourselves once we peel back the layers of all the things that have gotten in the way of living fulfilling, peaceful lives.
I work with preteens, teenagers, and adults who are experiencing a variety of challenges, including difficulties in relationships, grief, indecision, anxiety, and depression, as well as searching for meaning, which I believe is an inherent part of the experience of being human. I utilize mindfulness-based approaches in my work, as I believe that it is through being able to truly know and be with ourselves that we can heal and uncover our truths. I draw from person-centered, narrative, and existential theories, among others, as I believe that we are in a continual process of discovering and creating the meaning in our own lives and that it is through fully accepting who we are that we can see our lives–past, present, and possible futures–clearly. This process is complex, and each person is unique, so I approach each client individually so that we can find together what will work best for them.
