About Me

Are you feeling overwhelmed and struggling with life's transitions and conflicts? Growing up as a minority, I endured challenges and barriers living in a bicultural society including the stigma and lack of resources accessing counseling and supportive services. I sought an opportunity to get my higher education and counseling degree at Marquette University, where I received my master's degree in Community Counseling. I have 9 years of counseling experience working as a Licensed Professional Counselor based in the state of Wisconsin. I have invested my clinical experience and training in providing psychotherapy (adults, families, and children/adolescents), case management, and crisis intervention services using evidence-based practices such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Solution Brief Focused Therapy, Client Centered approach, and Trauma Informed Care. My goal is to cultivate new skills and build a better hope for the future.

I will strive to collaborate, advocate, and empower you while promoting dignity, well-being, and stability. I believe in creating an emotionally safe space for you to voice and express your concerns and issues without judgement. Everyone deserves an opportunity to share their story. I look forward to working on identifying and developing goals to meet your needs.

My experience with Naree has been excellent so far! I love that she’s based in the same city as me, and how flexible she is with how we meet. I’m (once again) new to therapy, after trying and failing a few times, and feel way more comfortable confiding in and seeking guidance from Naree than I ever did with therapists in the past.

Naree is caring and doesn't judge. She has been helpful with helping me explore my past, values, and goals. I enjoy the resources she has shared with me that help me understand having different perspectives. She also has sent me activities to complete in between our video sessions that have helped me understand my past.

She is really great. I was so so anxious to start therapy as I’ve had some sub par experiences in the past. It was so helpful to me that I could start FAST because the wait times in my area for my hospital are 3+ months and waiting that long allowed me too much time to talk myself out of it. Naree made me feel so welcome and listened to and I’m thankful she’s meeting me where I’m at. My one and only complaint is that she’s been a couple minutes late a few times but it’s so biggie!

Naree has been doing an a amazing job to work with me for these past few weeks. At first I was nervous, but she made me feel comfortable and made me be myself by expressing my feelings. She gives out good words of advice and she's also a very calm person .

Naree is very responsive and really cared about my well being during therapy. She offers many techniques to help you to heal and get to where you want to be in your relationships or in your own life. Naree is a very good listener which is what most of us need.
