Becoming a Relationship Therapist
I always knew I wanted to have a career that was truly fulfilling and be able to feel inspired by what I do on a daily basis. I can’t imagine not being a therapist. Having the opportunity to genuinely connect with people while they navigate through life makes me feel proud of the work I am doing.
My approach is based on resilience, and I strive to help people identify their own personal power. I believe that we have everything we need inside of us to rise above personal challenges and to reach our goals. Working with you to help you uncover your inherent strengths is at the core of what I practice, and I feel that change opens us up. I love working alongside my clients to design new ways of thinking and challenge long-standing patterns of feeling, thinking, and behaving that may be keeping my clients feeling stuck.
My Counseling Style and Strengths
I am able to build authentic and honest relationships with my clients by creating a space that offers candor, humor, and a normalizing approach to challenges. My approach is eclectic, and I will work with you to support and understand your unique needs in a direct yet empathetic way.
Professional Counseling Background
Since 2012 I have worked in a wide range of settings such as foster care, private practice, in-home, and in-hospital. My experience at these positions has allowed me to gain a clear knowledge of the physical, emotional, and psychosocial needs of adolescents, adults, and families.
