Counseling for Professional Helpers: Working with professional helpers brings together the two areas I have a great passion for and expertise in; counseling and supervision. I bring what I have learned over the years in both areas to be of assistance to professional helpers. My experience provides a strong understanding of the duality of professional and personal experiences and how each area interacts in unique and specific ways. As professional helpers, we know the power of helping, and we also understand that this can sometimes identify challenges or areas for growth. I want to help you through these challenges and experience your desired growth.
Individual Counseling: If you find yourself struggling from the stressors that everyday life brings, such as changes in relationships, work transitions, and life stressors. I am here to work with you to find your unique way of getting through those challenges, just as I have done with clients over the years.
Clinical Supervision: Over the past decade, I have focused on group supervision. I use two models for supervision, a developmental model and a humanistic model. These two models of supervision allow us to work together collaboratively to evaluate and inform the direction of our supervision sessions and your growth. I have over the years provided both individual and group supervision through face-to-face or in an online format.
Coaching/Consultation for Counseling Professionals: There is power in being able to grow and learn from others within the field. The ultimate goal is to continue the momentum you have already experienced in your previous work in an environment that is supportive and collaborative.
I believe that having a counselor who will listen to you and hear you is the key to having a productive working therapeutic relationship. I connect with people genuinely and honestly to provide a safe space to explore what brings you to counseling.

I align well with humanistic theories such as person-centered theory and existential theory. I use my skills as a counselor and my experience as an empathetic person to explore what has brought you to seek counseling. As with humanistic approaches, the clients' experiences are the essential parts of treatment. These experiences will guide us as we identify techniques that we will use to bring about the changes we have identified. I metaphorically see my role as a counselor as walking beside the client working collaboratively to find solutions to the challenges at hand and enhance well-being.
