Professional Counselor - MA, LPCC
I hold a B.A and M.A. in psychology and have been studying and practicing in the field of psychology for the past decade. I specialize in helping you identify and achieve your personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing you distress. Whether those issues are caused by life circumstances, mental illness, performance setbacks, or other factors, I am here to provide support. I offer assessments, tools, techniques, and interventions to assist you in becoming the best version of you that you wish to be. I specialize in anxiety treatment, Sport and Performance Psychology, and work with issues around emotional regulation, relationship with self and others, communication, life transitions, and issues around self-esteem/self-worth.
Understanding human behavior is a vast and ever-evolving phenomenon. Our life experiences shape us in a variety of ways and as it is, some of those experiences can threaten our overall sense of well-being. How we choose to view and manage life’s ebbing and flowing can be critical to our ability to maintain a sense of well-being.
My approach to working with clients is primarily person-centered. I find a whole person approach to therapy to be an essential part of the process. Recognizing individual potential and nurturing uniqueness, where each client is the expert on themselves and we work together to foster your skills and abilities in order to assist you in achieving your desired outcomes.
My passion for therapy stems from a longstanding desire to understand human behavior and why we think, feel, and behave the ways in which we do. Over the years I have had personal experience with what it looks like when mental health is not ideal. I have come across a wide variety of mental illness, ranging from slightly bothersome to severe and clinical. It is very meaningful to me when I can help an individual find their strength when they thought it was lost, find hope when they once felt hopeless, and feel empowered to take on the uncertainties that come with life.
In my free time, you're likely to find me enjoying long walks, spending time with my family, going to the movies, playing with my cats and dogs, and listening to music.
