My Approach to Helping

Taking the first step can be challenging, yet you just did it. Pause for a moment to feel the pride of making this decision for yourself. You are in a safe place. There is strength in seeking help when needed. You recognize the need because of challenges and traumas you may have experienced in the past or currently. These events are preventing you from experiencing the fulfilling life that you want.

I use an eclectic approach to techniques that are tailored to your needs. Together we can explore how your thoughts of past and current events in your life may be influencing your emotions and behavior. Then we can work collaboratively on changing patterns of thinking that prevent you from being the person you would like to be. I will create a welcoming environment free of judgment as we work together to accomplish your goals.

My desire to help people prompted me to follow my passion and make a career change after years in corporate sales. I obtained my master's degree in social work with a clinical emphasis.

I will be there alongside you as you begin to write a new chapter in your life. It is never too late to make a change.
