Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach
A counseling relationship provides a safe space for you to talk about your challenges and mental-wellness goals. I love working with all ages. My specialty areas are anxiety, depression, grief, loss, and general wellness and health through an integrated theoretical approach.
We all face challenges. I believe freedom comes from working through those challenges and learning to celebrate our unique path in life. I am committed to helping you take the next steps on your journey to well-being.
What to Expect in Therapy
Deciding to begin counseling takes courage, and I hope to help you feel and believe that you are not alone. You matter. I believe that each person has the ability to know what is best for them, however, sometimes a counselor can help us better see and reach our goals. Transitions and difficulties in life can feel overwhelming, but they can also be opportunities to grow.
When we are together, you set the pace. You decide what is important. You may have issues and trauma that seem more significant than what you want to focus on currently–that’s okay. One of my professors taught me that “if something is important and needs to be addressed, it will come up again.” I have found this to be true in my own life and that often our deepest sorrows can cultivate steadfast joy.
Personal Qualifications and Experience
Even before becoming a counselor, I went through my own journey of grief, and hungered for insight and understanding into mental health. I realized that mental health education was so important (and so stigmatized). I became passionate about bringing awareness and de-stigmatizing reaching out for support. I participated in and led powerful projects, fundraisers, and tools to help college students receive the help they needed.
After participating in my own personal counseling, I felt led to help others in the same way. It felt like a natural next step to enroll in Colorado Christian University’s Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. Once I graduate, I hope to focus on writing a children’s book about emotions. I also have a mental health initiative I would like to see become a reality, and maybe even give a TEDx Talk on suicide stigma someday.
I have many personal life experiences of overcoming challenges, and I am committed to working with you to reach your goals, no matter your age.
I live near Wash Park, and it’s one of my favorite places to unwind. I enjoy going to the gym in my free time and listening to podcasts and TEDx Talks on life, self-improvement, and all things related to our beautiful brain. I have two adult children, and I consider myself non-denominational and call Steven Furtick of Elevation Church my pastor though I was raised in the Catholic church and attended a Southern Baptist church for years.
