Hello! I am a Nationally Board Certified School Counselor and a Licensed Professional Counselor with ten years of experience supporting young adults through the post secondary planning and transition process.
My goal as a counselor is always to provide a safe, supportive, and encouraging environment. I see my role as a counselor as someone who meets my clients where they are and helps guide them to where they want to be through empathy and unconditional positive regard. Every person I work with is unique in their needs and my theoretical orientation is an integrated approach that includes a humanistic person-centered foundation and cognitive behavioral therapy when appropriate to meet the needs of the whole person. When applicable I like to include mindfulness practices into my sessions with clients as well.
My counseling experience has centered around working in large urban cities with individuals and families from diverse backgrounds. I welcome folks from all walks of life, backgrounds, orientations, identities, and religions. I consider myself an open-minded, ethical, and compassionate counselor. I look forward to getting to know you more as you embark on this new journey.
