My drive is to help individuals heal from past or current stressors. I love working with adults to talk things out and problem solve together. While obtaining my counseling license, I became further interested in the impacts of trauma or adverse experiences and how they could contribute to things like anxiety, depression, behavioral or educational concerns, and substance abuse. I have explored working with individuals who have had experiences of trauma stemming from domestic violence, tragic losses, or other adverse childhood experiences. I seek to give support to those in need by providing space to reflect and explore concerns so that they may learn how to heal themselves and better function in the world around them.
My belief is that individuals have the choice to accept parts of themselves and experience as well as to make changes to better themselves and their situations. I see it as an honor to provide space for individuals to explore the differences in these things, to make their own conclusions, and to learn skills or identify resources that will help them. My primary approach is person-centered therapy that uses cognitive behavioral theories and a solution focus in order to assist individuals to make better use of their strengths, interests, and skills. I sometimes provide homework during session for Clients to continue to work on their goals.
More about me:
In my spare time I do enjoy being with family and my two cats. I also consider myself to be an art nerd as I like to paint, draw, and make random crafts at times. I often like making things for friends and family. I also like attending arts events and shows. Art can be relaxing, meditative, and healing and I sometimes will incorporate this practice into my work with Clients.
