About My Clients
I do my best work helping clients... Feel confident in who they are and how to find happiness day to day even when things are hard. Learn healthy coping strategies that they actually want to use and find meaningful. Discover how to not feel guilty about setting healthy boundaries with friends and family. Feel like they have a voice and not feel defined by their circumstances. Increase their sense of inner strength and resiliency. Not sweat the small losses and instead focus on the wins.
My Background and Approach
I am a post-masters graduate, currently working on fulfilling requirements to obtain my license as Licensed Professional Counselor. I have my Master’s in School Counseling and have previously worked as a Middle and High School Counselor for the last 5 years. I have experience with adolescents and teens in individual and group counseling, focusing on self-esteem, anxiety, social pressures, and day-to-day barriers within teens. I also have experience working with helping parents and students improve healthy communication styles to better support the student. I did my post-masters internship placement with Replenish Her Counseling working with adolescents and young women. Throughout my experience with Replenish Her I have been finding my love of using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques as well as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I find these approaches particularly meaningful in helping my clients no longer feel paralyzed by their distressing thoughts and feelings.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I seek to help those who feel stuck in old patterns identify what is getting in the way of making the changes they desire. I am passionate about helping clients discover what it’s like to begin trusting their instincts and giving a voice to their boundaries and needs from others. It is my life’s calling to help those I work with know that they are not alone and that they have a safe place to come to in times of distress and hopelessness.
