Personal statement:

"Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyways." -John Wayne. I know that seeking out mental health treatment can feel daunting, but I have witnessed many brave men and women achieve powerful emotional healing by mustering up the courage to try. I strive to come alongside my clients and create a non-judgmental, safe space that fosters healing and growth. It is an honor and privilege to learn peoples' stories as a counselor, and I strive to build healthy connection that promotes emotional healing with every individual that I work with.
