It requires courage to ask for help and vulnerability to discuss aspects of one’s life that are difficult, neither of which can be easy. I recognize that life can be hard sometimes and when things are too heavy to carry you don’t have to go at it on your own. Therapy can be an incredibly helpful and rewarding experience where you can learn how to process through difficult emotions, explore patterns in your thoughts and behaviors, and work on making changes toward growth and healing.
I believe that everyone should be treated with kindness and respect, therefore I work to provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can feel seen, heard, and understood. Therapy should be a place of collaboration, as we work together to set goals and engage in meaningful discussion that is important to you. Counseling can help you to learn more about yourself and find ways to cope, heal, and overcome life’s challenges. I approach each client with curiosity, empathy, and compassion as you share your story and allow me to be part of your mental health journey.
I am in the process of completing my Master’s degree in Counseling at Bethel University, and am working under supervision as I progress toward licensure. My therapeutic approach draws from a variety of models including Cognitive Behavioral, Person-Centered, Narrative, and Alderian Therapies. In my free time I enjoy being outdoors, reading, traveling, and spending time with loved ones. I look forward to getting to know you soon.
