My journey toward becoming a therapist started when I was 18 years old, a freshman in college, sitting in my therapist’s office realizing that if everyone had some therapy, the world would be a better place. Nearly 30 years later, I still believe that. I believe most of us have hurts and pain from the past, which haunt us and our current relationships. Therapy is one of many tools in the recovery and healing process. As your counselor, my relationship with you is a collaborative, respectful, and professional one. My role is to guide and help you uncover the truth about yourself and empower you as you progress toward your true potential, your authentic Self. I do this through the meaningful connection of mind, body, and spirit. However, my approach to therapy varies, understanding that each person embraces understanding, healing, and resolution in different ways.
