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.

Approach Description: My approach to counseling is fundamentally relational. I want you to feel both safe and understood in the therapeutic relationship that we cultivate together. In my view, the counseling room should be a “sacred space” where you can explore the deepest and most vulnerable parts of yourself. In order for you to do that kind of work, we need to tend to our therapeutic relationship. I find several theories of psychotherapy to be very helpful. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps us to better understand the relationships between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness provide useful concepts and tools to help you relate to difficult thoughts and experiences in new ways, enabling you to live in a way that more closely aligns with your values and potential. If you want faith and spirituality to be integrated into therapy sessions, I gladly explore those areas with you as well and highlight ways to draw upon those strengths.
