I am very passionate about helping other people as I believe that every person is inherently valuable and worthy of living a meaningful and balanced life. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental environment for my clients. Much of my clinical experience includes working with adults and adolescents who struggle with addiction, depression, and anxiety. I also enjoy working with those who are simply in the process of adjusting to challenging life circumstances and events (i.e., the loss of a loved one, starting a new job, coping with a global pandemic). In all of these cases, I believe that change and healing take place in the context of relationships with others, and I consider it a privilege to cultivate therapeutic relationships with people who are working towards making meaningful changes. I draw from several theories of psychotherapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and person-centered therapy. As a clinician who also has an educational background in theological studies, I integrate spirituality and spiritual formation into counseling when desired by clients, always with the intention of helping clients achieve their goals.
