In undergraduate, I had a phenomenal counselor. Before finding my way to her couch I felt lost, uncertain of my future, unaware of my own needs, and often-times physically ill from experiencing chronic stress and anxiety. Through our work together, I learned to better accept myself, became more self-aware and self-compassionate, came to understand that I am not defined by my past, and began to better manage symptoms of stress and anxiety.

Meeting her and working together through my very own healing process, I gained inspiration and insight into the future counselor I aimed to be. 

I support and empower individuals as they grow through healing. I learned through my process, and continue to learn from the process of others, that progress isn’t linear and doesn’t look the same for everyone.

This is important to remember, because it’s so incredibly easy to tell yourself that you’re not doing enough, being enough, feeling enough, or trying enough. You can’t have more or less enough-ness than anyone else, no matter how hard you try. You don’t need to do more, be more, or try more to “achieve” enough-ness. You’re simply enough, just as you are. Being enough doesn’t mean you’re a finished product. You carry your enough-ness with you as you grow throughout your process of healing, learning, and blooming. 

In my experience working with varying populations, each client presents with unique, diverse needs. For this reason, my approach to counseling is holistic and integrative, with a foundation reliant upon Person-Centered Therapy. As a holistic practitioner, I believe in addressing the mind, body, and spirit throughout the counseling process. This approach provides perspective regarding the mind-body connection, and follows the ideal that this connectedness is key in making long-lasting positive personal changes.

Additionally, as an Integrative counselor, I pull from multiple therapeutic modalities when planning treatment to ensure that each client receives a personalized treatment plan to accommodate unique needs. My Person-Centered backbone aids in the development of an empathic counseling relationship with clients wherein we work collaboratively on goals and share genuine insights and experiences together.
