About My Clients

You look in the mirror and the person looking back at you is completely unrecognizable. You have given up everything for everybody else. You keep saying yes to others, and you continuously say no to yourself and your needs. You just can’t do it anymore. You scream for help, but nobody hears you. You feel like even those you used to be closest to do not understand. You fell into a dark hole, and no matter what you do, you can’t seem to climb out. You feel like you lost yourself.

My Background and Approach

My background in counseling and communication has prepared me to conduct individual, couples, family, and group counseling with children, adolescents, and adults. I have experience working with couples on resolving relationship stuck points such as communication trouble and trust issues in addition to working with adolescents and adults to combat anxious and depressive feelings and symptoms.My individual counseling style is grounded in psychodynamic theory, which focuses on unconscious drives and how the past influences the present. Additionally, I use a variety of interventions to meet each client’s individual goals including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) interventions, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) interventions, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) interventions, somatic experience interventions, and mindfulness interventions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I view counseling as a process in which client and counselor form a partnership to help initiate and maintain healing, positive change, and growth. This partnership is built on mutual trust, openness, communication, and respect. I am dedicated to providing each client with a comfortable, safe, and confidential space for sessions, bringing the best of my education and training, and listening to each client with an open mind and open heart.
