My Approach to Helping

Many people feel alone when they initially come to counseling. I would like to help you feel supported, understood and most of all, not alone. I will provide a comfortable, professional, non-judgmental place to explore what is troubling you. You will find that I am a curious, warm, empathetic counselor. After one or two sessions of gathering information and hearing your story, we will create a plan together to help you get on track with the life you want to live.

More Info About My Practice

My specialties include working with young adults (18-25 yrs old) and co-occurring disorders (people who have both a mental health issue such as anxiety as well as a substance use issue such as chronic marijuana use). I also work with those who are struggling with grief & loss of a loved one, particularly from a death by suicide or overdose.

I also enjoy working with a variety of client issues and a range of adult age groups. It keeps me up-to-date on relevant mental health and substance use issues and gives me a broader perspective as a counselor.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

You can depend on me being a trustworthy listener and we will go at YOUR pace. Your comfort with the therapeutic process is very important to me.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

American culture typically expects us to be self-reliant. While this is a positive trait to have, it is not the ONLY way to survive in this world. Having a balance of many character traits such as self-reliance balanced with being able to ask for and receive help is a healthier perspective. In fact, part of counseling is identifying and developing your character strengths.
