Personal Statement

I have always had a passion for helping people.  I always thought that no matter what someone is experiencing in life they just need someone to listen to their problems and being a counselor has helped me be that someone for my clients.  I truly believe each client and their problems are unique.  In therapy, I believe in working together with the client in order to create individualized treatment plans based on their goals and needs.I genuinely enjoy seeing my clients achieve their goals and grow from their experiences.  We all face challenges and obstacles in life and I want to give individuals the attention and tools needed to grow and overcome.  I work hard to tailor theories according to my client's needs whether it is cognitive behavioral therapy or a person centered approach.
