“Progress, not perfection.” The healing journey begins with any step taken to improve yourself, and every step deserves to be celebrated. As a strengths-based therapist, my aim is to help you rediscover and cultivate your internal and external resources towards the purpose of becoming your best self. We will celebrate each victory and grow from every struggle taken in your journey of improvement and healing. I will walk beside you in a partnership as you take steps to learn how to build a better life.
I approach counseling from a collaborative perspective, in which you, the client, and I work together to identify ways to address your concerns and meet your therapeutic goals. In session, I take an interpersonal stance where we explore the ways that your relationships with others can impact the concerns that brought you to therapy as well as how these concerns might impact your current relationships. I firmly believe that each client has the ability to accomplish their goals when they can engage authentically in a nonjudgmental therapeutic space.
I want to support you on your journey!
"You are a light, You are the light! Never let anyone - any person or any force - dampen, dim, or diminish your light. Study the path of others to make your way easier and more abundant. Lean toward the whispers of your own heart, discover the universal truth, and follow its dictates." - John Lewis

I believe that you, the client, are the expert of your own life experiences as I help guide you into awareness of yourself in connection to your goals.
