Great to meet you!

I love working with people and helping them "grow" through the things of life that they "go" through. A quote that I love to share with clients and live by personally is to remember not to focus on your purpose but to live your life purposely. As a military social worker my background is specific to first responders, but most importantly individuals that are learning their new "normal" after traumatic life events that have unexpectedly shaped them.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My style is person centered. I will always start where you're at, because counseling is for you, driven by you. I have a solution focused approach with a direct style. Don't worry, my empathy radar is high, but I also want to be sure to give you the support you need in order to shift change, not to keep you stagnant. The only constant in life is change, so why not grow through it?

What you can expect from our first session

I strive to create an environment of peace; whatever that means to you. After session when you go into a world of chaos, my goal is that you'll be reminded of what peace feels like so that you can utilize the tools we discuss during session, in your everyday life. If you don't use it out of session- you'll lose it. After our session, my goal is for you to feel empowered, hopeful and ready to take on the week with a different outlook and yes, there will be homework.
