Why I Practice Therapy
The capability and resiliency of the human spirit is something that never ceases to amaze me. My passion for mental health counseling always has stemmed from believing in people and the possibility for meaningful change. Listening to people and their stories is something that I have always had a passion for even before my time in this profession and I am no less than completely honored to be in this field. As a counselor, I believe my purpose is to meet you where you’re at right here and right now. No matter what your story is I will do my best to listen and support you whatever way that might be and provide a safe and empathetic atmosphere for you to open up.
I graduated from Regis University in Denver with a Master’s Degree in Counseling and am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCC). I have worked at multiple agencies, in my own private practice, and volunteering with a number of different therapeutic approaches and populations. I have also worked with a variety of mental health issues and find myself continuing to increase my areas of focus and people to work with. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and groups and find that I work best with adults in a number of areas that include trauma/PTSD, anxiety, depression, personal growth and anger.
My Approach To Therapy
I believe that as human beings we have the capability and capacity to find our ideal self and to increase our quality of life. I recognize that everyone has their own approaches to how they might accomplish this and therapy is a great tool for discovering your own potential, to be able to share your story without judgement and to be able to be heard. Through exploration of your own story and getting to know yourself more deeply both in the past and present there are opportunities to find out more to the questions we have and get in touch with your ideal self. I will take the time, wherever you are at, with the hope to discover and/or improve what your approaches work for you.
My counseling approaches are informed by a humanistic person-centered perspective. Humanistic/experiential counseling puts emphasis on healing through the therapeutic relationship and awareness of self. Through strengthening this relationship and awareness a counselor provides empathy, genuiness, support as well as bringing focus to the here and now in order to promote the ideal self.
