Am I the right therapist for you? It depends on whether my approach to therapy and personality are the right fit for you. So let me share a little more about myself, so you can decide if we would work well together.
Most clients describe me as authentic, friendly, nonjudgmental and down-to-earth. I enjoy what I do and find conversations with my clients stimulating and exciting. You will always get honest feedback from me. One of my personal values is to practice what I preach. I will not ask you to engage in treatment modalities I have not practiced myself. Health and well-being is the backbone of my personal life practice and is an ongoing pursuit of my growth and learning.
I work with individuals and couples looking to overcome personal challenges, such as marital issues, loss, and grief, depression, anger, family conflict, relationship issues, major life transition challenges, or spirituality issues. My primary approach is solution-focused counseling because it is result-oriented. I also use cognitive behavioral approach - CBT (or an integrative approach) methods depending on the needs of the client. I've spent nearly two decades in ministry-helping kids, teens, adults, parents, groups, and families navigate their unique situations, and I have been teaching counseling at the graduate level since 2016. I am currently a Military Family Life Counselor, with over 7 years of military service. I have traveled the world and embrace all peoples, cultures, and beliefs. I use a holistic, non-judgment, and multicultural approach to counseling. I believe in working with clients' strengths and support systems to enable them to meet their goals and I am here to journey with you and to help you achieve your counseling goals if you let me.
I graduated from Saint Norbert College, Wisconsin, with a BA in Communication. I graduated from Creighton University with two degrees: a Master of Science degree in Community Counseling and a Doctor of Education in Leadership with Emphasis in College Counseling. Currently, I teach graduate-level courses at Creighton University, where I serve as a Resident Assistant Professor in the Department of Education, School Counseling, and Preventative Mental Health Program. I also have a private practice where I provide counseling services, supervision, Training, and consultation.
I offer both office visits and video therapy. For more detailed information about my practice, please visit my professional website at www.prosightful.org
