Personal Experience & Biography
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) who has had the privilege of gaining experience in a variety of counseling settings. I offer individualized person centered therapy. I provide a holistic approach to counseling by addressing your physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. I approach therapy in a very integrative, client-centered manner to ensure the highest quality care is provided. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques in a safe, accepting atmosphere so that you feel heard, validated, and empowered.
I would describe my style as warm and supportive, and I am ready to help you tackle your struggle head-on. Collaboration is important – together we can work on establishing concrete goals and steps for you to help overcome your current problems. I use a person-centered, holistic, multicultural, and integrative approach in your treatment sessions. This means I begin where you are and we will tailor the treatment approach together to your needs while being sensitive to how your individual cultural identities and lifestyle choices impact your experience. I use evidence based techniques including but not limited to cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, solution-focused counseling, as well as EMDR.
I have found that most of my clients often return for follow up sessions due to the safe, warm, and inviting atmosphere you will be provided. During our sessions you will be able to freely express thoughts, feelings, and urges without the worry of judgment. I am not a quick fixer and I do not have a magic wand however I can provide you with not only education but the tools you may need to aid in living a healthier lifestyle.
