Through my own life experience and observing others struggle through trauma and pain, I found my passion in truly wanting to help people find their path to living a healthy, fulfilling life. Sometimes, we meet challenges that extend beyond our individual ability to cope. I believe that everyone has within themselves the capacity to rise above and grow from these challenges. It is empowering when even at our lowest moments we can reach inside and find a strength we never knew we had. I understand that asking for help is not easy and going to a counselor takes courage and shows great strength because in asking for help, we are allowing ourselves to be our most vulnerable. As a mental health counselor, it is my job to provide a warm, compassionate, nonjudgmental space where you can freely express yourself and learn how to navigate the challenges in your life. offer a kind and compassionate approach to therapy to help individuals be empowered and motivated to bring about positive change. I believe individuals have the ability to utilize their own strengths to overcome the challenges they are facing. The therapeutic relationship is a key factor in the success of therapy and I work to have a trusting relationship to create a safe place for the individual to discuss whatever their needs may be. Together we can work towards personal solutions to tackle the challenges you are facing.
