I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a background in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Substance Abuse Counseling. My clinical experience includes working with individuals experiencing complex-trauma, severe co-occurring mental health and substance use issues and a diverse range of presenting issues; most commonly depression, anxiety, complex trauma, life transitions, grief and loss, and adjustment issues.
Therapy is a space for you to be heard and feel empowered. My hope and purpose is to give you a safe and comforting space to nurture the relationship you have with yourself, and support you in expressing and exploring your thoughts. Throughout the process, we’ll work together to build a relationship that you can trust, identify and implement strategies that are useful for you, and modify along the way.
I utilize an integrative therapeutic approach incorporating techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. My counseling philosophy emphasizes a holistic approach in order to create a safe space for my clients to explore themselves fully and maximize their potential. A strong therapeutic relationship is key to effective therapy, which I cultivate through genuineness, compassion, and patience.
I am deeply passionate about suicide awareness and prevention efforts, and have actively participated in the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention community walks and events annually. There are many ways suicide can impact our lives, and I am here to walk the path of healing with you: you are not alone.
