Is this your first-time seeking counseling? Are you feeling nervous, unsure, or excited? Or are you familiar with the process and in need of a little extra help right now? Regardless, taking the first step is the hardest! I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully taking you beyond that first step. However, before we get there, let me tell you a little bit about me.
I view counseling as a collaborative and relational process in which the foundation is built on mutual trust and commitment. The relationship between counselor and client is the vehicle through which change can occur. Therefore, it is my intended goal to create a safe, trusting, supportive and non-judgmental environment. I am passionate about helping others heal their “open wounds,” and I can’t wait to hear more about you! It would be an honor to join you on your healing journey and provide additional support along the way.
My intended therapeutic goal is to help the clients gain personal insight and growth, while also developing a deeper understanding of themselves to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life. There are many different approaches to the therapeutic process. I primarily utilize an integrative approach, leaning heavily on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with focus on arousal regulation, mindfulness, and attachment theory.
