About My Clients

You’re feeling like the weight of your situation is taking over your life and you just want to hide away until it all disappears. It seems like you've tried everything, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You are disconnected from people; you are burned out or feeling slumped at work and taking care of basic daily things is just too much. What you want is to get to a place where you can feel alive and head towards your goals, to live a full life.

My Background and Approach

Let's work together where you lead the way and I point out some hidden paths you might have forgotten about or missed. It might sound strange, but I believe we know ourselves and we know what we need more than anyone else does. My approach is to encourage you towards your own meaning, purpose, and creative expression of your core self so that you can build self-acceptance and strengths to feel confident in facing the world the way you want to. We will get there by working with self-compassion, insight building, humor, and skill-building. As a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, I have a unique understanding of chronic health and impairments as well as experience in career changes.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We reach our fullest potential when we understand our values, even though we sometimes forget them or get led away from them. They are the things we stand for, the things we live for. In my practice, I firmly believe that you are a whole person, and you are not broken and do not need to be fixed and I will honor this each time we meet. Your history, values, culture, background, lifestyle, and experiences are an important part of who you are and deserve respect and affirmation of those parts of you. This is your space to be seen, heard, and validated and you can be your authentic, true self.
