Have you been feeling stuck in a rut? Has your daily routine become mundane? Are you feeling
hopeless or worried about a variety of areas in your life? Have your social and romantic
relationships started to become strained… or maybe your relationships have felt strained for
some time now? Maybe you have been having a hard time accepting yourself for who you are,
or maybe you do not have a real understanding of your true self?
If you are feeling unsatisfied with your current life story it may be time to start working toward
future chapters. You are the main character of your life, and as a counselor I am here to
empower you and encourage you to take time to consider the narrative you have created for
yourself. It may be time to consider if your current life story is serving you. My core values as a
counselor include creating an empathic and nonjudgemental space where clients can address
root causes of unsatisfaction or conflict in their life. Together we will work on addressing thoughts
and patterns that no longer serve your highest self, and identify new strategies to help you
manage both internal and external stressors.
As a counselor I utilize tools from a variety of counseling approaches. I employ different strategies and tailor them to the goals of my clients. My overarching belief is my clients are experts of their own life and possess all the tools they need to meet their goals and create change. My role as a counselor is to act as a support to facilitate growth.
I am passionate about working with individuals, couples, and families. I have a special interest
in working with adolescents and young adults who are experiencing depression, anxiety,
perfectionism, academic concerns, low self esteem, relationship and interpersonal conflict. My
other areas of interest include strengthening family dynamics. You may feel that your family
system is transitioning and you are looking for new ways to connect and grow as a unit. I enjoy
working with families through parent-child relationship counseling,sibling counseling, marriage and premarital counseling.
