My Approach to Helping

At times life can be challenging & reaching out for support & assistance is necessary. I believe in a holistic approach and work with you through your personal struggles to find peace in your life and achieve your goals!

Counseling is a way to have a non-judgmental professional help you manage your particular stresses & learn ways to cope. When we face challenges in life many times we are not coping well with them. We also may not be taking care of ourselves in the way we need to. Neglecting eating habits, struggling with sleep, isolating from loved ones. I provide a safe place for you to process your emotions and get your life to feel the way YOU want it to be. Whether it\'s addressing past struggles or managing current ones, appropriate treatment can help.

You can improve your relationships, overall health, and focus & live happier!

I have several years of experience providing counseling. I am a mother, a friend, & a real person who has the professional education & experience to assist you. We do not all fit in a box and what works for some people does not work for others. I use all of my experience and training to provide you with the therapy that is a good fit for your personal situation.

I provide in-person or teletherapy (HIPPA compliant online video counseling). Nowadays we all have busy schedules, & getting out to drive through traffic, find parking & go to an appointment can be a burden. With teletherapy, you receive counseling in the convenience of your home.

More Info About My Practice

My office is a calm peaceful environment. I believe that feeling comfortable is important for the therapeutic process. I also use technology to make the therapeutic process as easy as possible for you. I have electronic consent forms, text or email reminders for appointments, and easy sign-in for the waiting room. NO printing, signing, or wasting time filling out documents when you just want to talk.

If you are not comfortable with technology I have paper copies of all consent and intake forms as well.

What\'s most important to me is that you feel comfortable and I am able to help you address your personal concerns in life.
