As a counselor, I believe it is my role to provide a safe and compassionate space for each person that chooses to share their experience with me. My job is to help each person I see to explore past hurts, to put voice to feelings, and to help each person make meaning out of their life. It is my belief that many of us walk this world not fully allowing ourselves to come into our own, due to a fear of not being accepted and due to limiting beliefs given to us by others and society.
As a counselor, I will provide a space of unconditional acceptance and compassion, in order to allow others to begin to see their authentic self. I will use different methods that suit each person and will encourage each person to make this process their own. When participating in couple's counseling, we will explore each person and what they bring to the relationship and how to build and enhance the relationship. Unity, learning love, and understanding are key to a long lasting relationship.

Very easy going and approachable. She was able to guide our sessions right away after quickly discussing what I intended to get out of the meetings.
Would recommend her for sure.

Dawn has helped me navigate through very hard decisions that I couldn’t have done alone. She truly listens and respects your views as well. She is great at breaking down the problem and step by step gaining a solution.
