I make sure that my clients are aware that I am here for them and that their voice matters. After completing an assessment, I review the information that was discussed and ask my clients to pick the most important concerns or issues that they would like to work on. I desire to know my clients’ goals, dreams and aspirations. There is something special and fulfilling about actively working towards your dreams and your vision whether it’s emotional, financial, relationship based, etc. I help my clients develop achievable long-term and short-term goals as well as identify specific steps to work towards those goals. I always keep in mind, one day and one step at a time.
Some people may be afraid that they will be labeled or feel that therapy comes with a stigma which may lead them to feel as if they’re risking their social life, career, relationships and more. Others may struggle with finding the right therapist. This is why I strive hard to create a safe place for my clients and assure that they feel welcomed and free from judgement. Therapy is healthy, provides support and insight. It’s a place where you can confidently be yourself as you work towards improving your strengths and needs.
I absolutely love helping others! I’ve been motivated and driven to help others since my elementary school years. I frequently volunteered in multiple settings to help others who needed a push and more. I’m a very engaging person who is very compassionate about helping others win. I strive to put my best foot forward to help my clients find their spark. It’s rewarding and fulfilling. I believe that anyone can benefit from therapy. Identifying strengths, needs and desires creates a confident and winning atmosphere. I give this same energy to my clients. We have enough negative entities in our lives that don’t require reminders. I teach, coach and provide on purpose with a motivating attitude to help you win.
