My passion for counseling has been consistently stirred by my own life experiences and need for support during, what felt like, impossible obstacles. It was not that long ago that I was the person sitting across from a counselor, using up all the Kleenex, feeling rejected, hurt, angry and hopeless. My feelings of defeat in that counseling room were met every time with compassion, empathy, understanding and the belief that tomorrow always provides the opportunity to begin again. I gained tools and resources and faced tremendous growth and self-reflection. Right now, so many people are tired, worn out and struggling with the day to day, believing that they are stuck and very much alone. My hearts passion is to help you see, that tomorrow always provides a new opportunity.
I believe that every individual has the potential and the capacity to face hardship with strength and resiliency. My passion is to help clients navigate the ever-changing landscape of their lives to discover their own strengths in the face of adversity and to celebrate the best versions of themselves. Through the therapeutic relationship I desire to create a collaborative, safe, non-judgmental and vulnerable space where clients can come to be seen, heard and known.
Whether through unexpected or planned life transition, challenging circumstances or relationship, the daily battle with chronic illness and/or pain, or simply seeking to become the best version of themselves, my passion is to provide individuals with coping skills, management strategies and resources to gain self-confidence and motivation to move from where they are to where they want to be. I believe that our past influences our present but does not define our future.
I have completed both my Undergraduate degree in Psychology and hold my Graduate degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
