I work with children, adolescents, and adults through a person-centered and narrative approach by taking into consideration how various intersections of a person’s identity contribute to their own unique story. Recovery is possible and begins when clients feel safe to share their own personal struggles and collaborate with the counselor to find solutions to their presenting problems. I utilize genuineness, humor, nonjudgement, warmth, empathy, and unconditional positive regard in sessions to support my clients in their journey to mental and emotional wellness.
My hope for my clients is that they find trust, comfort, and acceptance within our therapeutic alliance and recognize their own resilience while honoring their own unique identity. I support individuals with a variety of issues such as, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, multicultural identity, dissociative disorders, current/past trauma, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, attachment issues, PTSD, work/academic stress management, and LGBTQIA+ issues.
I look forward to collaborating with you to find effective ways of coping with life’s various challenges.
