About me

My degrees and experience:
I have been counseling since 2016 and am currently a Nationally Certified Counselor, a Licenced Professional Counselor, and Certified Clinical Supervisor of Career Counseling. I earned my Masters of Education in Counseling from Colorado State University and have worked primarily with young adults and midlife career changers. I specialize in anxiety stress and self-doubt, as well as in career development and life design.

My philosophy:
My experience as a counselor who helps others overcome obstacles, persevere through troubling times, and developed stronger relationships comes from my education. Life has a tricky way of teaching us what we need to learn from trial, error, and sometimes even failure. For me, career failure has been a great teacher and has helped me understand how to better help my clients find passion, fulfillment, purpose, and drive in their work as much as in their personal lives. After quitting a 10-year career in graphic design, I decided to never again allow myself to live with constant burnout, anxiety, and stress from the expectations set by family, friends, work, and society. It was at that point that I began formally studying counseling and career development at Colorado State University where I focused specifically on the impact of career on human development. It was at CSU that I realized how important work satisfaction can be to personal relationships and overall mental health. Similarly, struggles with mental health and personal relationships can also have a negative impact on a career, which is why I bring a career perspective to all my sessions. Because of this, I will implement aspects of counseling and personal development that you may never have been exposed to so that you can gain a greater sense of clarity in your life story. My approach is primarily a mixture of cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and positive psychology approaches.

My why:
Why I counsel is simple. I help to unleash people from their doubts and fears about life so that we can build a better, happier, and more fulfilling world.

My question to you:
Do you believe that your current personal and professional lives are affecting each other and causing you distress and discomfort? If so, reach out to me and we'll set up a session soon.
