Personal Statement

Throughout  my education I always knew I wanted to help people, and it wasn’t long  before I decided the way I would do so is through counseling. I feel  blessed to be a part of each and every personal journey and love seeing  the growth and strength that is gained. I work with individuals to  identify current struggles, explore strengths and solutions, and develop  healthy ways of coping and healing. Using a solution-focused,  person-centered approach, I will join with you providing encouragement  to overcome personal obstacles and the empowerment to face whatever  challenges come your way.
