Sharing your life story, thoughts, and emotions with a stranger or counselor can be scary and uncomfortable. My goal is to provide clients with a non-judgmental, safe, heard, respected, and supported environment. I believe every client is different and has a special story to tell. I aim to help each client explore their thoughts and emotions, good and bad from their life in a welcoming environment.
I approach counseling with clients like a door. Not every locked door can be unlocked with the same key. Different locked doors require different keys to open. What works for one client, may not work for another. This means I work with many different approaches. From Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychoanalytic, to Constructionist. However, my main counseling approach, foundation, is Humanistic, Person Centered. This focuses on the therapeutic relationship between the counselor and the client. As a counselor my goal will be to build the relationship with my clients by providing an empathic understanding of my client’s point of view. I will aim to provide clients with unconditional positive regard in a non-judgmental environment.
Areas of Specialty
I have worked with clients from a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and experiences. Working together we have overcome and confronted challenges that include anxiety, depression organizational skills and focusing, communication and career struggles. I have also worked with clients on confidence struggles, family, and partner conflict.
I am currently completing my master’s degree in Clinical and Mental Health Counseling at Oakland University. I will graduate in April 2023 with my LLPC. During my internship I am serving clients under the direct supervision of a licensed professional counselor. Before entering the master’s program at Oakland University, I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Sociology from Oakland University.
