My goal is to provide clients a safe place to feel comfortable and accepted. I work in collaboration with clients to achieve personal growth and find balance through understanding, rather than focusing on temporary fixes. I also enjoy bringing humor and art into the healing process. I feel that we know ourselves best, sometimes we just need a guide to help us out.
My counseling style is eclectic and includes aspects of Gestalt, Person-Centered and Dialectical Behavior Therapies. This allows therapy to be individualized to a client's needs and strengths. I have experience in treating a variety of issues, including those related to self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and trauma.
