Philosophy and Therapeutic Approach

Counseling is a sacred time for your thoughts, emotions, struggles, fears, dreams, joys, and triumphs to be shared in a safe environment. I believe talking with an individual who is attentive and empathetic opens up the door for authenticity, connection, and healing. As a counselor, I look to offer this to each of my clients every session.

My therapeutic approach involves person-centered, existential, family systems, cognitive-behavioral, and narrative therapy. This means that I aim to give my client unconditional positive regard and empathic understanding while respectfully framing their past, present, and future in a way that takes into account their purpose, family context, agency, and an overall experience of what it is like to be them.

What to Expect in Therapy

You can expect a therapy session with me to be client-oriented, allowing you to use the counseling session as a safe place to process what you are going through. I highly value sharing a vulnerable space with clients and being a steady resource in their time of need. You can also expect me to be fully present and work hard to comprehend your lived experience. With this sacred information, I look to help you understand your current situation and explore ways to improve your quality of life by tackling the obstacles in front of you at any given session.

I enjoy bringing creativity to the counseling room through role-play scenarios, metaphors, and experiential exercises that bring about insight and discovery in a new and intriguing way. My goal for each session is to leave you feeling understood, with goals to work toward, and strategies to use until we meet again.

Personal Qualifications and Experience

In 2018, I earned my B.A. from Colorado Christian University in Psychology and Communication. I graduated from Denver Seminary in May 2021 with an M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I began with Cornerstone as an intern and now have the privilege of working as an LPCC. I have counseled children, teens, adults, and couples and have helped guide them in their struggles with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, obsessions and compulsions, life transitions, addiction, interpersonal relationships, communication skills, and spirituality. I am committed to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor so that I can further assist clients with hardships and the healing process. 

personal Interests

I was born in Tennessee, spent time in Arizona, and have lived in Colorado for six years. I have been married to my beautiful wife since 2019. I enjoy being in the great Colorado outdoors, hiking beautiful trails, playing sports and board games, snowboarding, writing stories, being involved with my local church, and spending time with family and friends. I am a major sports fan and particularly enjoy watching college and professional football and basketball.
