Personal Statement

I knew from a very young age that I wanted to help people in a one-on-one therapeutic setting. 

I approach clients needs by focusing on what the client’s goals are and use their strengths to allow them to achieve said goals. I allow for the client to use the space we create in session to heal, process, and make changes by encouraging clients and holding them accountable. Every individual possesses strengths, it’s a matter of utilizing those strengths to ensure positive outcomes for each individual. I look forward to working with you!
