Personal Statement

After benefitting greatly from my own therapeutic experience, I decided I wanted to pursue a degree in counseling myself. Through the counseling relationship, I hope to provide a safe and empathetic environment for clients to begin to process and heal from life's painful circumstances. I also have a deep respect for the recovery community, believing that growth and lasting life change occur within the context of relationships. I will partner with my clients by providing encouragement and support as they learn new ways to cope with life's challenges and make positive changes. I am grateful to be able to help clients find renewed hope and joy in life on their journey towards healing and recovery!
