As a counselor, my desire is to foster a safe environment for individuals to feel welcomed, valued, and supported. I believe that every person has a unique story that defines who they are today. My favorite author, Brené Brown said, “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” I seek to help individuals own their story, embrace vulnerability, and find courage as they work towards a healthier self. My goal is to help individuals look towards their future with hope. I am honored to play a small role in the lives of others seeking peace.
