I believe in the potential and value of every person and that it is a privilege to work with people as they find hope and freedom through their own growth process. I practice meeting each person where they are, and practice through an integrative and evidenced-based approach that meets their needs, values, and personal goals. Using my gifts of compassion and empathy I strive to provide a calm, genuine, and accepting environment that supports healing and growth through the therapeutic relationship. I have experience incorporating faith and spiritually into treatment when clients request it, as well as practicing with a trauma- informed approach to treatment. I have experience working with individuals to address anxiety, life transitions, stress, relationship issues, women’s issues, self-esteem, depression, PTSD, and more. I primarily work with adults and adolescents.
