I am an intern Counselor who is a Christian, but I seek to value the diversity, worldview, and belief of each person. I will work with you to identify the underlying issues that may be getting in the way of your well-being and growth and together we will work to address these issues. I believe that each person and family with whom I work has the capability to address their own needs, my work is to support you in recognizing and enhancing this capacity. I value emphatic therapeutic relationship and in conjunction with other theories I use Psycho-dynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies to unveil causes of presenting problems.
I worked with families, adults, and children in a church setting as an elder and youth group leader. My prior experience includes working with employees on supervisory and people development roles.
I am passionate working with a wide range of clients including TRAUMA, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, and RELATIONAL ISSUES.
