Sports will always be my first love. As a player and coach, I have experienced both the challenges and growth that come from competing. The court/field can often be a reflection of what is going on in life, and I hope to come alongside athletes to find meaning and identity in who they are, regardless of their performance. My experiences as an athlete drove me to the counseling field. The same passion that drove my competitive nature (still very much in tact) fuels my desire to see clients become the healthiest versions of themselves.
Unlike the sometimes ruthless nature of athletics, I approach each relationship with openness and understanding. In counseling, there are no losses or metrics to track your progress. There is only total acceptance of where you find yourself today. My hope is that clients feel seen for the intrinsic worth they have as a person, not just a performer. Your journey is valuable, and I would love to be part of it.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, former athlete, and former coach, sports have always been a big part of my life. Being around athletes and coaches, I have always been interested in what makes people excel. After getting my degree, I became more interested in how the mental aspect of sports, work, and personal life impact the whole person. When one area is off, it can derail other areas of life.
As a clinician, I strive to help people with growth, knowing that the areas of a person are connected and can shift. Whether you were looking to grow in your athletic arena, personal life or other life stressors, I will help you to move in your desired direction. Things in life can change quickly and I love to help others with those changes (whether they are foreseen or unforeseen). I believe that by working together, you will be able to have your desired growth.
