Becoming a Relationship Therapist

I have worked extensively with children and adolescents and often see the struggles they have with their family members. I feel called to help people create healthy and happy home lives as I know how that translates to success in all areas of a person's life. We enter into many different types of relationships throughout our lives and understanding the basis of how to create positive relationships with others can make a world of difference.

Counseling Philosophy

My philosophy is that no one person or couple should ever have to feel alone in their struggles. It is crucial for me to be trauma informed and culturally humble. I am here to provide support as well as the understanding that everyone goes through tough times and the people who come out of those tough times are the ones who asked for help and were able to put in the effort to push forward. I hope to encourage my clients to keep pushing forward and see that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Counseling Style and Strengths

I consider myself a person-centered therapist meaning the client is the expert in their experiences and my goals are to provide empathy and guidance to the client on whatever their journey may be. I offer a warm and inviting environment that promotes safety and trust in the therapy office. I provide a non-judgemental space for clients to openly explore their wants and needs. I strive to empower my clients to reach for their goals and create the life they want to live.
