About My Clients

The most prevalent mental health concern that I have come across, both on a personal and a professional basis, is anxiety and related challenges. Each year, this seems to start at a younger age. It is important to help children, teens, and young adults as soon as possible, in both a preventative & management approach. I typically work with this population, meeting the educational standards of a Certified Clinical Child and Adolescent Anxiety Treatment Professional. https://thelisteningnest.com

My Background and Approach

I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate, working toward the final tier of the licensure process. I work with clients of all ages, especially with children, young adults, and families. My approach to treatment involves a holistic, strengths-based modality, utilizing mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy & family systems. My approach to therapy is to help individuals become more aware of their strengths, and their limitations. I teach new techniques to incorporate into one's daily life, to help manage these inevitable obstacles. Growth and healing aren't linear, though it would be ideal if they were. With a teamwork approach, one is able to start this process. We all have strengths within us that we may or may not be aware of. The fact that you are viewing this page right now tells me that. My goal is to help clients learn effective tools that can be used long-term, to reach realistic, positive change. Visit my new website for more! https://thelisteningnest.com/

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My personal beliefs can be partially summarized with the following dichotomous mantra of "I can be better, but I am also good enough." What this means is that each day, I strive, both on an individual and a professional basis, to learn more and become more aware about various essential causes. This includes the LGBTQ community, racial injustice, suicidality, and so many others domains. However, it is also important to remember the "I am good enough" piece, as this involves accepting and loving who you are, and who others are as their true selves.
