In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson “What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.” I believe that the greatest capacities for overcoming challenges in life are found in being able to utilize and increase our strengths. As a counselor, my goal is to help my clients become aware of that power and successfully overcome a variety of mental health and life challenges.
I want to provide my clients with an environment where they can be open about these challenges and be understood. I strive to help my clients develop lifelong patterns of thinking and acting based on what is most important to them and help them live the most rewarding and meaningful life they can.
Through the course of therapy, I help my clients process and work through difficult emotions that inevitably occur in life. I enjoy working with OCD (including scrupulosity or religious OCD), PTSD, Anxiety, and Depression.
