My counseling philosophy:
I provide trauma informed care for adults, young adults, and adolescents, offering skill building, mindfulness, and processing with Ecotherapy techniques. I believe that by actively applying new skills, you will become empowered, and thus more able to create an atmosphere promoting the achievement of your personal goals. I find counseling to be a sacred process, with moments of deep reflection and moments of joy and celebration
I aim to cultivate a safe and creative environment within counseling sessions where you can explore every facet of your unique self. I have a neurodiversity lens, which celebrates differences within variations of the human genome (such as those on the Autism Spectrum) and mind (such as those experiencing Bi-polar). I focus on strengths to identify and integrate what you excel at to support the healing process.
Some of my hobbies include playing board games, gardening, backpacking and car camping. Some books you might find on my bookshelf are quantum physics books, metaphysical books, memoirs, and Sci-fi. I am the type of person who enjoys deep conversations about our universe, and who will enthusiastically discuss high quality Mac-n-Cheese options (Bonus points if you can put these two conversations together).
