Helping Clients Thrive

My approach to counseling begins with creating a safe, warm, and accepting place for you.

I believe that effective therapy happens when you get to show up as your full self — with all your strengths, areas for growth, wounds, and successes — and feel seen and accepted. My hope is that, together, the burdens you are carrying and the pain you are experiencing become lighter, softer, and easier to carry.

We do this through collaborating on what has not been working for you, identifying the main pain points, exploring core beliefs that are increasing mental health struggles, increasing self-acceptance and self-compassion, and finding ways to repair the relationship you have with yourself and with others.

What I Do For Self-Care

I am a big fan of rest and truly believe that this looks different for everyone. For me, rest and self-care looks like connecting with loved ones, watching TV shows and movies that shine a light on the beauty of humanity, eating delicious food, and finding small joys throughout my day — like my morning cup of coffee. It also looks like pushing myself to do things I don’t love doing because I know, in the long run, it will feed my mind, soul, and body (like cooking, which is a task I am trying to learn to love).
