I am a Masters-level intern in my third year of Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, graduating in December 2020. I believe we often experience events out of our control and struggle to cope with what happens in our lives. When events and emotions become overwhelming, fear can serve to either help move us forward, or hold us back. Sometimes fear can manifest in feelings of discomfort that keep us rooted in our comfort zone. Only by taking action beyond our comfort zone can we grow.
It takes great courage to step outside ourselves in these moments, and even more to ask for help. Sometimes an outside perspective can be beneficial. It can help us into an awareness we couldn’t see before.
I believe every individual is the catalyst in their personal growth, that each person has answers to what they seek within them. I empower clients to be the change in their own lives. I practice from a strength-based approach that incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy. My role is to support you on your journey to healing.
I strive to create a judgment free space that encourages you to be your authentic self. I see the authentic self as our core self underneath all the expectations on who we feel we should be. The authentic self is who we are. I look forward to supporting you on your journey to your authentic self.
