My focus in counseling is to walk through the discovery process along side my client to help them find their true voice. My role as a counselor is to encourage clients to identify their strengths, values, and passions as well as areas for growth. I work with therapeutic practices that include but are not limited to: cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, sand tray therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, attachment focused therapy, Enneagram personality strengths, and life coaching practices. I strive to hear and understand an individual's story and listen for events, decisions, or interactions that may have caused them to get off track thereby feeling lost or stuck in their present situation. I work with each client to create the changes, understanding, and/or new way of being that they want for their life. This work can be challenging. Clients are expected to do their personal development work outside of session in the context of their lives. Our time together is used to process what is holding them back and what is moving them forward toward their healthy way of being.
I enjoy hiking, biking, photography, and any activity that gets me outside in our beautiful surroundings. I have a passion for discovering new music, watching college and professional sports, giving back, and spending time with friends and family.
