I see counseling as a collaborative relationship between therapist and client, and I believe change happens when a client feels safe and empowered in that relationship. I see each person’s story as unique, and therefore have an integrative and individualized approach to the therapeutic process. However, because I believe in the power of the stories we create about our lives, both through experience and relationship, I am particularly drawn to a narrative therapeutic approach. I believe therapy is an opportunity to reshape our stories, I enjoy supporting people in processing their stories as they seek a deeper understanding of themselves.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.”  -Dr. Brenè Brown
