Maple Grove Therapy & Wellness Team
individuality • non-judgement • nurturance • collaboration
We believe that every individual deserves to have their uniqueness valued in a non-judgmental way; to grow and change at their own pace in a safe space. Nurturance because we care and encourage the development of every individual’s strengths and understand that everyone needs to feel hope and that someone believes in them. We pride ourselves in our ability to collaborate with those we serve, families and other professionals to provide the best care we know how.
I seek to help people find hope and light in dark times. I love working with youth, young adults, families, and couples to help mend concerns and disconnects within important relationships because relationships are a foundation of life. In addition to relationships, I love working one-on-one to help clients find new ways to heal and cope with whatever their life situations may be: mental illness, life changes, grief, loss, transitions, and any other obstacle that is ever-present in life today. Each person has their own story, and I am humbled to help clients navigate theirs.
I offer client-centered care, helping to guide clients to develop skills to manage distress within their current functioning. I am trained within EMDR therapy and use this as a skill to help clients manage the distress of daily life. I have an added skill of utilizing faith for those who have faith as a tool to help manage and navigate their life situations. My mission is to help clients to navigate the stressors of their daily life better and develop a life in which they are proud.
