My Approach

My approach challenges irrational beliefs , unhealthy thinking, maladaptive behaviors, and resistant mood disorders. I consider myself a pastoral counselor with a mental health clinical orientation who desires to serve people in the spirit of compassion. I am a skilled, active listener, intuitive and refer often to my broad life's experiences to individualize therapeutic treatment. I understand a person's need for significance and purpose in life. I strive to help clients discover purpose for their lives by presenting myself as a mirror to the client where they can hear and experience their own thoughts and feelings.

My Background

I earned an M.S. at Loyola University (Baltimore) in 2009. My Master's Degree was in Pastoral Counseling where I learned how to integrate pastoral issues into clinical counseling. I specifically chose this degree program because I believe that people long for deep meaning in their lives. Many people believe in a higher power that guides their lives and is intertwined with who they are. I specialize in this kind of client. However, I am also skilled in supporting clients who are not seeking pastoral counseling. I have experience working with adolescents, couples, families, and people with anxiety and depressive disorders. I do not see clients with psychosis or serious mental illness.
