"I believe everyone has an intrinsic goodness. Knowing your goodness provides you with the foundation to tackle the bigger issues in life."

As an individual… …YOU are good. The way we interpret society, our environment, relationships, and our own thoughts creates internal stories that have an impact on how we view ourselves and the life we are living. Those stories can result in habits and coping mechanisms with negative consequences. You may feel lost, living a life you don’t agree with, experiencing negative thoughts and feelings and not understanding how you got there.

A guide to self-validation

I believe everyone has intrinsic goodness. Knowing your goodness provides you with the foundation to tackle the bigger issues in life. These stories or messages are inhibiting you from embracing your goodness. As your therapist, I will guide you towards identifying, acknowledging, and taking control of these stories. My goal is to help you understand where you are, develop a plan of action, and implement that plan. My hope is that you will be able to walk away from therapy with the tools you need in order to overcome future obstacles.

My understanding of counseling comes from Person-Centered, Narrative, Solution Focused, Developmental and Attachment-based Therapy. I believe in the power of the therapist-client relationship, and providing a safe, confidential and accepting environment that is built on dignifying the client. I utilize aspects of mindfulness therapy and mindfulness practices to help individuals achieve a sense of responsibility. By working together we can create real progress in your life—personal growth, healing, and understanding that will last a lifetime.

You are worthy
