More Info About My Practice

I am a licensed professional counselor with more than a decade of experience working with adolescents, children, and adults in a variety of settings. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches, which include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, emotion-focused, solution-focused, and psychodynamic techniques to tailor treatment to fit individual client needs. My style is strength-based, with a focus on acceptance and compassion. I endeavor to create a comfortable, judgment-free space where clients feel comfortable talking about their problems so they can build resilience, insight, strength, and empowerment.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in work with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, relationship and life transition stressors, trauma, addiction, and grief/loss. I have also received training in Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

My Role as a Therapist

I have worked with individuals and families who have reached rough spots in their lives and are looking to find ways to resolve these issues. As your counselor, I would listen to the story of your journey and use my training and experience to help you create your personal map to navigate your way to your goals. I will work with you to uncover what might be preventing progress, modify goals if appropriate, and make a referral for you to another professional(s) if necessary, and/ or at your request.
