My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor with over 16 years of experience working in mental health and addiction recovery. I am genuinely passionate about healing and fostering an atmosphere for individual restoration by giving clients the skills and tools needed to live a healthy and productive life. My mission is to provide professional and caring, individualized, person-centered mental health and addiction counseling while treating people with dignity and respect.
I have spent most of my years working with those who struggle with mental illnesses such as major depression, bipolar, and schizophrenia. However, I also have experience working with co-occurring disorders, addiction recovery, relationship issues, anger management, and trauma. I enjoy staying abreast of relevant trends, practices, and modalities in counseling. I have even presented at various conferences at the local and national levels on mental health and addiction recovery.
I provide client-focused and result-driven mental health and addiction counseling for individuals, groups, couples, and families. Core values I strongly believe in are Compassion, Acceptance, Leadership, Excellence, and Benevolence.
