Personal Statement: My passion of helping others has always been something I take great pride in and truly value. I believe my role as a counselor is to help guide and assist clients in exploring and processing through challenges in order to promote growth and the possibility of change. My roles may vary from day-to-day, from being an advocate, educator, cheerleader, listener, or a much needed and consistent source of support. I take each and every role seriously and value the time and courage my clients show each and every time they walk through my door. I am honored to walk beside my clients as they learn more about themselves and begin to grow. By creating a safe, stable, and positive therapeutic environment, it is my hope for my clients to develop the skills and confidence needed to become the best versions of themselves.
Fun Facts about You: I enjoy reading, gardening, doing arts/crafts, and spending time with my husband Austin and our two boxers, Lenny and Lucy.
Why did you choose Tanager Place? Tanager Place offers a wide range of services to help not only the child function better, but for the family as a unit to function better. Having previously worked at Tanager Place as a Treatment Counselor in the inpatient unit, I always enjoyed helping children gain confidence and the skills needed to increase their independence and foster success.
