Becoming a Relationship Therapist

From my youngest years, I knew that my heart belonged in working within the helping profession.

My decision to pursue a career in therapy has become the most fitting and rewarding career that truly aligns with my passions and values. I wholeheartedly believe in the value of therapy in helping others to better their lives and reach their highest
potential.

From a relational perspective, improving relationships are paramount in creating the life that you want to achieve and I strive to help people to develop loving and healthy relationships.

Counseling Philosophy

Life is filled with beautiful and amazing experiences in addition to painful and heartbreaking experiences and it’s my goal to be there every step of the way through our therapy journey. I believe in the power of resilience and overcoming life obstacles that lead to new found skills and effective ways to improve one’s life. I offer therapy sessions that are tailored to each individual's specific goals and needs. I strive to create a non-judgemental therapeutic environment where individuals are able to be vulnerable and in touch with their feelings. Our therapy sessions will lead you to feel like you are truly investing in your best self.

Counseling Style and Strengths

I bring a very warm and inviting presence while maintaining a person-centered and humanistic approach to therapy. I strive to support individuals and couples in gently challenging negative thoughts and collaboratively work together to find effective solutions towards managing life hurdles and challenges. I bring positive psychology, optimism and hope into the therapy room and my open-mindedness is incorporated in every session. I hold a non-judgmental space for individuals to express themselves fully and authentically.

Professional Counseling Background

I have extensive experience working in the field of addiction and helping individuals in their journey towards recovery and wholeness. I have supported individuals, adolescents, couples and families in navigating their goals to improve their lives and relationships with loved ones. I also have vast experience in supporting individuals with dual diagnosis and comorbidities.
