I am a down-to-earth therapist with an empathetic ear that provides an honest/authentic perspective. I have a gregarious personality and a great sense of humor.
I enjoy building people up and encouraging others to live up to their potential. I believe that living up to your potential does not happen without some sacrifices and hard work. I believe that sometimes it seems easier to blame others or make excuses rather than examining and owning truth about ourselves.
My motivation for helping others in this capacity is driven by my desire to help people recognize that they are worthy of being loved and they are capable of living a healthy and joyful life even in the face of adversity. My approach has been influenced by my own life experiences, academia, and my Christian beliefs.
