My core belief is that each person is the expert of their own story and therefore has the power within them for productive growth. Sometimes you just need some gentle guidance along the way and that's where I come in! I utilize multiple therapeutic techniques and creative interventions to tailor each session to meet your unique needs at that moment. Some of these techniques may focus on wellness, symptom tracking, awareness, thought reframing, etc. I also believe that a person's unique experiences deeply affect them and so I often approach counseling through a trauma-informed lens. The therapeutic process is a constantly changing journey that requires different pieces at each stage. I will be with you along this journey, thinking of creative ways to address your needs and always providing you with support and encouragement.
I believe that everyone deserves a space where they can feel safe and free to explore the deepest parts of themselves. Sadly, for many reasons, I don't believe every person is allowed that space in today's world. As a response, I strive to affirm the dignity, worth, and value of each individual that I encounter and to provide them with an environment of respect and openness regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation, or religious background.
