Our experienced therapists are dedicated to helping you navigate your life journey.
"Therapy is a safe place to allow yourself to open up and share from your personal book. Whether you need to develop solid, positive outlines for your next chapter or establish healthy coping skills from those previous chapters and volumes you’ve already encountered; I am here for you.""
"My goal is to meet you where you are at, in order to ensure that your experience in counseling is one that is both safe and comfortable. I believe that there is no one-size-fits-all approach for therapy. By working together, in this space we can form a collaborative relationship that will work to identify goals that will foster positive change and growth."
"I incorporate techniques from a variety of therapeutic principles and philosophies to help meet the needs of each client. I seek to provide a safe space in which clients feel free to disclose any of their innermost thoughts, feelings, concerns, and beliefs. My goal is to provide an objective, non-judgmental perspective, which helps facilitate processing and leads to an increase in the client's self-awareness."
"The therapist is present to support and walk alongside the client on their path to well-being. I believe that people have the solutions to their problems and challenges within themselves and the therapist’s job is to help excavate what is buried within. Prior to my work as a therapist, I worked for 20 years as a Sign Language Interpreter for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing."
"None of us go through this life unscathed by crisis, difficulty, struggle, or grief, but we can find hope and joy despite the brokenness in life. I would be honored to walk through a portion of your journey with you."
"As a clinician, I meet you where you are on your journey. Therapy can be intimidating, but you've done the first big step of looking for help. That's a win in itself! I empower clients through their own strength to take control of their lives. Whether it's learning coping skills, practicing mindfulness, or just having someone to talk to, I get it. Life isn't easy and you don't have to do this journey alone."
"It is not easy to acknowledge it is time for a change. This need arises from a variety of sources for many reasons. Sometimes we need assistance with navigating our emotions or processing what is occurring in our lives while other times we may need more guidance with finding our direction on where to even begin. I would feel honored to assist you."
"I believe each individual is an expert on themselves and what they need. Whether you're looking for slow, internally focused sessions, or more intensive goal-oriented therapy, I can work with you exactly where you're at."
"I use an eclectic method of therapy, going to where the client is and has been, helping them have insight, awareness and behavioral and/or response changes as I help them unfold and address issues in their life story. Let the change begin.....supported and guided with accountability and love."
"I believe that we are each experts on ourselves, and that when we find ourselves in a space with people who are authentic, accepting, and empathetic, we have the capacity to truly transform our lives. I aspire to develop this space in the therapeutic relationship with client."
