Helping Clients Thrive
When working with clients, I use an interpersonal approach and offer a safe relational space to navigate the various trials of life. I walk alongside clients in their unique journey as I listen attentively to their experiences and offer hope in the healing process. When it comes to accomplishing your goals, we will to focus on the here and now, and collaborate to make progress in every session towards achieving your goals.
Making a Difference
In working together, my goal will be that you feel seen and heard as you engage in the counseling process. I use my training with Parakaleo to engage in each client’s unique story and look below the surface level emotions and behaviors, exploring deeper underlying heart felt beliefs about self and others. My ability to engage in difficult personal and relational spaces in life helps to shed light into darkness and hope into brokenness as I focus on walking with clients towards wholeness and restoration.
What I Do For Fun
I enjoy playing Bach on the piano, sipping coffee with friends and getting new stamps in my passport as I travel with my husband and four children around the globe exploring this beautiful world. The adventure of learning about new cultures has given me a bigger view of the world and informs my perspective on life.
Why I Became a Counselor
I believe we were created to live in relationships. While relationships can be a source of our greatest happiness, they also can be a source of our greatest heartache. I became a counselor out of my desire to help individuals, couples and families navigate life’s journey and experience a depth of relationship that comes from walking through conflict, suffering, and loss to the other side of hope, restoration, and healing. I consider my role as a counselor to be a sacred space as I’m invited to journey with my clients for a season in the here and now of their story.
