Counselor, MS, LMHC
I am currently accepting new clients on Saturdays at the Johnston location only.
I bring a client-centered, integrative approach to my counseling relationships which allows for tailoring to each client's need. Creating a safe, supportive, and caring therapeutic relationship, I value and seek to understand my client's personal and cultural identities. It is my belief that our early life experiences and relationships play an important role in how we experience ourselves and others. Counseling can help clients develop a greater understanding of self and cultivate helpful ways of coping.
My work with you will be collaborative. I will be alongside you, honoring who you are and will help you open up to what blocks you from living a full life. We will move in the direction of your values and goals.
I am a generalist with 10 years' experience who is passionate about helping others navigate interpersonal relationships, life transition, issues related with family-of-origin and cultural, racial, gender and sexual identities. I hold extensive skills working with professional, graduate and university students and helping clients with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, career and academic issues, life balance/harmony, parenting, self-esteem and existential exploration.
