My Counseling Approach

Life can consist of a myriad of twists and turns that stretch you in ways you could never imagine. It can also push you to reach heights you never thought you could. However, it can be overwhelming trying to maneuver through the process alone, and can be challenging trying to find balance in the midst of the chaos. Even the things that seem simple, such as discovering your purpose in life, learning to grow when you feel things are stagnant, and being heard when the noise is so loud can be emotionally taxing.

My goal is to help you explore new possibilities by developing healthy coping skills to overcome the hardships life brings, reach your full potential, and lead healthy and holistic lives. I use a variety of therapeutic methods to explore past experiences, determine the origin of behavioral patterns, and determine the impact they have on your life today.

I recognize that faith in God is a major aspect in the journey to growth, overcoming adversities, and excelling to new heights. It is my desire to build a rapport with you, so I can be a part of your process to help facilitate change, promote healing, discover your inner strengths, and begin the process to take things to the next level.
