“I’ve wanted to help people in some way since I was very young. I was unsure of what form that would take until I began taking counseling courses and realized how much I thoroughly enjoyed helping empower people to be who they are and gain more of a sense of control in their lives.
Over my career, I have largely worked with adolescents, but have been lucky enough to work with a variety of clients. I’ve gotten to see the wonderfully diverse, motivated and strong people in my community and seen positive changes and growth occur over time. Youth I worked with becoming successful, ambitious adults. Those struggling with anxiety taking back control of their lives. Victims of trauma work to confront and process their past and lessen the hold their past has on them.
Of particular interest to me are those in underserved communities, such as the LGBTQ+ community, those of racially diverse backgrounds and those struggling with economic hardships. It is my hope to be able to reach out to those, as well as any others who wish to work through any personal struggles, no matter how seemingly small they may be.
An unfortunate fact of life is that nearly all of us have experienced some form of trauma. There are varying degrees of trauma, but the events can impact us in many different ways. To that end, I also have worked hard to learn and utilize therapeutic skills to assist clients with recovering from and processing the intrusive symptoms often associated with traumatic experiences, working to help my clients return to a higher level of functioning and a better quality of life. “
