While eclectic in theory and practice based upon individual experiences and concerns, I approach counseling through a person-centered focus while also implementing techniques associated with mindfulness and unconditional positive regard. When necessary, I also approach counseling through a solution-focused lens to account for a short-term counseling model.
I have a strong interest working with LGBTQIA+ clients, specifically with gender and sexual identity concerns, as well as those whose lives are impacted by substance use. I also firmly believe that a multifaceted approach to counseling benefits my clients, all of whom possess individual life experiences based upon their intersectional identities. Everyone has their own stories, shaped by identities and experiences, and I strive to honor these stories and create a space that is healing and supportive.
