I believe that change can occur within a safe, trusting environment. I strive to establish and maintain that environment through meeting clients where they are, and carefully guiding them to where they want to be. My counseling relationships are built on trust, honesty, and mutual respect. I believe that there is always hope in every situation, and I make every effort to help clients find their hope.
I seek to create genuine therapeutic relationships where clients feel comfortable expressing their deepest concerns within the safety of a non-judgmental setting. I strive to fully understand and empathize with clients and their difficult situations. It is truly an honor to be part of a client’s journey to restoration and success.
