I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
My focus is to assist the individual to identify and learn about the mental health issue being experienced or the behavior and the effects and consequences that are presented. I work to enable the client to learn from and about the effects of the mental health concern or the behavior and make different choices and plans for change. This is done through assisting the client in discovery of their strengths, building a support systems, education, and exploration of the struggles or behaviors associated with the mental health concern as well as developing healthy lifestyle choices that are the foundation for success.

Listens and observes solely you during your sessions. Kirby is great at assigning and sending you resources to help you during your mental health journey. I’ve never felt rushed during a session and always leave with a great sense of calm after our sessions.
