My role as a therapist is to provide a supportive, open, and empathetic environment in which clients are free to tell the full truth of who they are and what they are experiencing. I take a person-centered approach to therapy, which means I believe you, the client, are the expert and the authority on your own inner world. My job as a therapist is to listen deeply and reflect what I hear. I will hold space for you as you process and explore the core of who you are, and will encourage you in living into that authentic sense of self. Together, we will identify patterns of thinking, feeling, and relating, and examine those which are serving you and those which are standing in the way of the life you want to lead. It may not always be a comfortable process, but I hope it will be meaningful, and ultimately, transformative.
While new to the counseling field, I have over ten years of experience serving in the helping profession as a spiritual director. I am happy to incorporate spiritual practices into the counseling session upon request.
