Professional statement

As of 2014, I have gained professional experience within the mental health and human services profession through entry-, mid-, and senior-level positions across agencies and organizations. Aside from private practice, I currently hold positions as: a mental health counselor (therapist), department director, and consultant.

Since beginning my clinical practice in 2019, I have developed an understanding for supporting the distress and presenting needs that individuals, families, and couples (of all ages) are faced with. This experience allows me to help people with the navigation of: uncertainty, unpleasantness, doubt, pain, loss, or hurt; while providing a safe, tailored, and confidential setting for your therapeutic journey.

In my work, the therapeutic journey focuses on helping people achieve: clarity, centeredness, acceptance, growth, happiness, peace, autonomy, and self-sufficiency - to improve your overall well-being in meaningful and sustainable ways. Thus, reaching personal growth and establishing authenticity within yourself.

My approach includes a combination of: Humanism, Cognitive-Behavioral, and Post-Modern therapies to provide a person-centered, cognitively-informed, and strength-based lens to the therapeutic process. My aim is to maintain the role of unconditional support, providing you with a gentle guide and collaborative partner as a means to help you pursue introspective insight and achieve healing.

Message to clients

I understand the importance and impact of providing a safe space where you can be your raw (unfiltered) self.

Throughout the therapeutic journey, your needs and forms of distress may change. I have found that the therapeutic process may be optimally effective when it is tailored to your presenting needs - in the moment. We will navigate this journey at a pace that feels comfortable for you; while adapting and adjusting to become responsive to your evolving needs.

My aim is to create an environment that allows for exploration and meaningful insight. I will offer support with unpacking the thoughts, emotions, and experiences that impact and affect your life. My primary hope is to empower you to overcome these difficulties and identify the most manageable path towards healing and growth.

Together, we will collaborate to create a therapy experience that aligns with your needs and fosters improved change.

I am happy to join you on this journey of self-discovery, healing, and personal transformation.
