​I recognize how important a strong therapeutic relationship is to a person's healing process. I work to create an environment where effective communication, validation, consistency, and honesty are present in your sessions. In addition to the therapeutic relationship, I use a strength based approach in therapy. This means I help you harness strengths already innate within you through self compassion and giving yourself credit allowing your strength to shine through as a foundation to your healing. I believe it is important to challenge thoughts and behavior that hinder your goals. With this in mind, I encourage clients to take personal responsibility for their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so you can become truly empowered. My motto is: “when you know better, you do better”.

Building a strong and effective therapeutic relationship with my clients is one of my strengths.  Utilizing effective communication, validation, consistency, and encouragement helps form the therapeutic relationship. With a focus on the strengths of my client in the therapeutic process, I help clients harness those strengths through self compassion and giving credit to how their strengths already shine through. Having this relationship also provides space to challenge clients to grow. I encourage my clients to take personal responsibility for their own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so they can become truly empowered. My motto is: "when you know better, you do better."

When we’re not working together in the therapy room, you’ll find me gardening, enjoying delicious meals, going fishing, and spending time with my family. When I'm not cheering you on in the therapy room, you'll find me getting my hands dirty in the garden, cooking and eating good food, or embarking on epic fishing adventures (though the fish don't always seem to get the memo!). So, if you're ready to take the first step toward healing and happiness, let's dive in together and create the life you have been dreaming of!
