"As a mental health counselor, it is my aim to empower clients to discover their best selves, inviting clients on a therapeutic journey of healing and self-exploration. I feel strongly that I am a vessel to promote and provide a healing environment for clients, and the opportunity of growth from within utilizing an integrative, holistic approach to counseling in conjunction with application of the wellness model. It is one of my greatest joys to help my clients come to understanding that they are capable of making profound changes in their lives, able to re-frame their stories, and alter the outcome with implementation of healthy coping skills and mindfulness practices with discipline, focus, and intention."
