I’ve always been drawn to understanding and helping people. I use a client-centered approach to counseling – I trust that the client already has everything within themselves to make lasting change. My role is to guide them towards health and well-being. I believe that mental health and physical health are intrinsically connected, and I encourage clients to examine the ways that their physical health is impacting their mental functioning. I assist clients with increasing coping skills, communication skills, and awareness of self and others. If I had to name a specialty it would have to be a focus on the child – both actual children and the inner child of adults. I believe in giving voice to the voiceless: I want to honor children, as I feel they are sacred, and I also want to honor the adult’s inner child that too often has been silenced or overlooked. I am passionate about helping clients reclaim their sense of self, creativity, worth, gifts, and truth. I love working with parents and families to reduce conflict, and increase communication and peace within the parent child relationship.
