It takes courage for students to reach out for professional help during difficult times, so I do my best to make the experience of counseling as comfortable and supportive as possible. Very often those I counsel are experiencing a lot of stress, going through big changes in their lives, recovering from difficult past experiences, and struggling with self-doubt, discouragement, and other painful emotions. I view students with compassion and offer a safe place to talk through things and problem-solve together.
