I work to create a trusting environment where clients feel safe, accepted, and empowered to make powerful transformations in their lives. Through the use of effective evidence-based treatments, clients are given the tools they need to work toward achieving their goals. In understanding that the client-counselor relationship is vital to change, I aim to come alongside clients on their journey to mental and emotional health and wellness.
Since childhood, I knew that I wanted to end up in some sort of helping profession. My personal experiences led me to develop a great passion for mental and emotional health, and counseling is a rewarding career that enables me to channel that passion. I became a counselor because I believe that mental and emotional health is vital to overall well-being, and my goal is to help clients work to attain a greater quality of life. After all, we were made to thrive!
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to learn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a little bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
