There are many presenting issues that might bring you to counseling. Finding a therapist that you can connect with and build an alliance with is important to your success in therapy. I work very hard to create a relationship that will provide you the safety and warmth that you need to explore your experiences; I am very comfortable earning your trust. I use different treatment modalities, depending upon which is appropriate for you personally. Empathy is the primary tool used to give you the safety you need to explore your inner world while we begin to understand your experiences together.
I utilize an attachment-based perspective in my counseling approach. Additionally, this approach is proven to be beneficial when treating individuals who have experienced traumatic events and a variety of difficult life experiences; leaving you feeling isolated from the meaningful connections you desire.
I utilize a sliding scale fee to help you access the quality services you need. I provide statements to you for submission to your insurance company if you have out of network insurance benefits. Phone and video conferencing sessions are also available as needed.
As a counselor I strive to work with children and adolescents, individuals, couples and families. I possess a wide range of experiences that allows me to meet the diverse need of our community.
I strive to ensure that the needs being brought into the counseling room are held appropriately with empathy, safety and patience. I work to allow individuals to feel heard which encourages healing.
Creating space for your needs in the counseling room allows there to be connection and healing. I will utilize different treatment modalities depending upon your difficulties. I encourage you to reach out with your needs and allow the healing to begin either for you or for a loved one.
I empower people to overcome life obstacles and begin to grow with the confidence, peace and strength to live a fulfilling life.
I am a former mental health tech at a psychiatric hospital, current medical office specialist for HCA. My experience in the mental health field as well as my education gives me a unique value as a future counselor.
Currently, I am a second-year Master’s student at MidAmerica Nazarene University. I am set to receive my degree in May of 2020. I work from a client centered approach, focusing on relationships and attachments. We will walk this journey together.
Having worked in a psychiatric hospital, I am familiar working with a variety of issues that occur in life. I am looking forward to becoming EMDR certified before graduation.
Let’s grow together
