What to Expect in Session:
Many of us struggle to express our authentic selves- which can cause stress, frustration, and emotional dysregulation. It is often a learned process to abandon parts of ourselves, in order to meet the needs or expectations of others. In my approach to counseling, I aim to create an empathetic, non-judgmental space for my clients to safely express their true selves. Through practicing healthy coping skills & and emotional expression one can learn to integrate the lost parts of the self.
Counseling can be a scary process, especially for those who are new to the world of counseling. In my sessions, I look at the forming experiences that trained you to be who you are today. In making sense of our past, we can step into the future with more confidence in where we are going. Stress is an inevitable part of life, however, I believe that achieving a balanced life where stress does not rule our world is possible. Through learning about the role the mind and body have on our overall health, I hope to empower my clients to better understand themselves and minimize the stress or fear they may feel in beginning counseling. Other values of mine I bring to the therapeutic process are respect, humor, diversity, and growth.
With a background in working with sexual assault and domestic violence, I am passionate about working with trauma and educating my clients on the connection between the brain and the body. I prioritize feeling safe in my counseling sessions and aim to take a holistic approach to your care. I have a passion for working with clients of all ages and backgrounds who may be struggling with anxiety, life transitions, depression, career decisions, social anxiety, spirituality, sexuality, and self-esteem/ confidence.
B.S. in Psychology~ University of Central Arkansas
M.S. in Mental Health Counseling ~John Brown University
I came to the field of mental health because of my passion for learning about psychology and finding ways to apply that knowledge to help others. It was in my own experiences with counseling that my dream of working with others was instilled. When I am not working with clients I enjoy hiking, trying new recipes, and exploring the city. Getting outdoors to connect with nature is my favorite form of self-care. Also, I love expressing myself through creative outlets and spend much of my free time painting or trying a new craft!
