My interest in counseling came when I was working at a crisis care clinic but really took focus when teaching college classes as students and patients alike would discuss the many obstacles their life was bringing to them. While people have always looked at me as an easy person to talk with, I am also able to walk beside the person in an empathic, non-judgmental regard that focuses on the emotion within the therapy room. I believe in bridging the gap between problem and focus so that everyone can undergo their own transformation of growth
