Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I enjoy being able to help clients in their journey through life, whether it's working on a mental health issue, self-growth and exploration, parenting, communication problems within a relationship, needing someone to listen and process life's difficulties, or another area. As a counselor I get to be in a unique position where I am able to watch people grow as they make changes in their life. I feel honored to have people trust me to take part in this journey with them, and it's a position that I don't take lightly. For some the thought of being in therapy can be overwhelming, scary, or anxiety-provoking. For others, it may be a relief to feel that you are taking the first step towards resolution. Change is never easy, and it takes courage to work on yourself, a relationship, or family problem. Sometimes life can be tough, and it can be helpful to have a therapist to help explore and process what you are going through. My hope is to create a safe environment where you feel comfortable to share and explore your deepest thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
