My counseling philosophy is that each person’s life story is unique; therefore, their counseling experience is also unique. A person’s life experiences and environment impacts them in many ways. Some experiences are easily understood while others may leave us questioning. I am passionate about helping others overcome adversity to achieve their goals by focusing on a person’s strengths. Working together, we will explore your experiences, their context in your life, and how they affect your thoughts, emotions, self-esteem, and behavior.
