People have many different reasons for becoming a counselor just like there are many reasons why people seek counseling. Searching for a therapist/counselor is like trying on shoes, sometimes the shoe fits perfectly and sometimes it take a while to get the right fit. Each counselor is unique in their abilities to meet their clients where they are, whether it’s struggling with a chronic mental health diagnosis or working on a current life phase problem. My approach to therapy is a meeting you where you are, creating a therapeutic relationship that allows us to explore your current problems, finding a way to reduce your pain and finding out why these problems are happening in the first place.
I am a temporary licensed mental health therapist, which means I am working towards my full licensure. We are required to work closely with our supervisors meeting with them weekly. I am hoping to have my full license by June 2021, just before my 50th Birthday!
