Tell us a little bit about your approach to counseling:

I operate from a client centered perspective where I believe each client knows best about their individual experience and I am there to develop an empathetic safe place to join with them on their journey of life. Since each individual is unique, I utilize an integrative approach to therapy to tailor treatment specific to each client’s needs and goals. Primarily, I structure treatment around Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused, and social justice modalities.
