Relationships can be difficult. I have expertise in areas such as communication, codependency and relationship dynamics. I genuinely enjoy helping others. I love to see small progress and empower others to make positive changes in their lives.

My counseling approach encompasses many modalities all in order to help you reach your goals. Solution focused, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and mindfulness are all examples of techniques I use. My counseling style is client focused.

Darci is fantastic. I had her a few months ago and had to stop using FaithfulCounseling for one reason or another, but now that I’m back I couldn’t imagine seeing anyone else. She has complete expertise in what she’s talking about and just in general is very smart and brings up perspectives that I never would have thought of

Darci is great! I've been meeting with her for 6+ months now to talk about various mental health and relationship struggles. Talking with her every week has been incredibly helpful for me and I feel like I've grown a lot :)

Darci made me feel very comfortable talking with her. She helped me to break down my problems and solve them for myself. My experience with her was very empowering.

Darci makes me feel very comfortable and that isn't easy to do. I am able to open up and discuss things that are very uncomfortable for me.
