I believe when someone seeks counseling one size does not fit all. I like to utilize different approaches and theories based on what each individual needs. I feel this is important to help each client see their own potential and to walk boldly towards the success they seek. These approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with an emphasis on helping clients understand the connection between thinking, feeling, and doing. Another approach is helping people accept things that are out of their control and learning to ride the waves of life, the good, bad, and the ugly. Psychoeducation is very important to me as well. How can we battle something if we don’t know what we are battling? Educating myself and clients on how they can better cope is a large part of how I try to serve them. Ultimately, I strive for each client I see to feel a sense of hope through a person-centered approach and genuine care. For a better future, and for their potential to be the best versions of themselves.
We all know that most families have dysfunction, mine was no exception. Growing up was difficult and losing my mother at a young age impacts me still today. My life changed drastically as I followed my heart in wanting to serve and help people heal, just as I have needed to through the years. Helping others heal no matter what they face is more than a job or a career move, it is what I was born to do. Helping others is good for the soul.
My spiritual walk is the most important thing to me, alongside is my amazing husband and best friend of 16 years, and our two incredible boys. We love spending our time together and with other family and friends. Some of our favorite things to do are fishing, and curling up together watching movies.
