During my counseling internship at UNCSA for the 2023-24 school year, I am excited to create a supportive environment where students are free to deeply explore themselves so that we can learn and grow together. I have spent most of my career working in higher education serving the high school and college population, where I discovered my passion for helping people achieve their goals and dreams.
In my clinical experience, I have worked with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, life transitions and other related concerns. I enjoy guiding emerging young adults towards helpful solutions and skills that will transform their lives in a positive way. I believe each person is an expert on themselves through their own lived experiences and I am honored to partner with individuals on their journey towards self-discovery, healing and growth.
My approach to counseling is rooted in person-centered therapy that focuses on establishing a trusting relationship and meeting the client’s individual needs. Having studied other holistic modalities, such as energy healing, bodywork and meditation, I often incorporate mindfulness interventions that complement the therapeutic process. As part of my counseling work, I strive to teach and empower clients so they can unlock their untapped potential to become who they truly are.
