“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how” -Friedrich Nietzsche
I work with teens, college students, and adults helping them quiet distorted thoughts and beliefs they may have about themselves in order to reclaim their confidence and live a hopeful and meaningful life. Whether you are struggling with grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, or substance use; I am here to walk alongside you on your journey to mental and spiritual healing. Prior to my professional career, I was a competitive athlete. I am eager to carry over this passion of mine and help collegiate athletes with mental barriers that may be holding them back from peak performance. My personal journey to spiritual and mental healing, as well as my qualifications as a counselor allow me to face various needs with empathetic understanding. I aim to explore what it is that may be holding my clients’ hostage and help them find meaning in their pain and confidently overcome it.
In the therapy room, I value a collaborative approach allowing my clients to share any concerns and/or voice any desired changes for the best possible outcome. The rapport-building process is important to me as I believe therapy is most successful when there is a trusting client/counselor relationship. Think of me as your mental health co-pilot!
I use a creative mixture of motivational interviewing, trauma-informed therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy depending on the client’s needs. My experience in the realm of addiction recovery has gifted me the ability to graciously see the best in clients struggling with addiction and help them reclaim their best selves regardless of their faith or background. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor and have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Briar Cliff university as well as a Masters in Clinical Counseling/ Mental Health from Liberty University.
When I am not with my clients, I am either exploring creation through various outdoor activities, or binging the newest crime documentary.
Please feel free to reach out to me and we will get you scheduled!
