My Approach to Helping

I have worked with couples, families, and individuals in private settings, as well as online through TELEMENTAL HEALTH systems.

I help individuals overcome loss and grief due to death, divorce, job loss, and more. I also help them with depression, trauma, anxiety, eating disorders, learning difficulties, sexual abuse, self-harm, OCD, anger, and ADHDADD.

I use a variety of approaches to help families, individuals, and couples build functional, healthy lives and relationships.

I treat the entire family, meet individual needs, and strengthen family systems to help my clients feel hopeful about the future so they can heal.

More Info About My Practice

Sometimes my clients feel better working from their home and completing counseling sessions through the internet. This is a wonderful opportunity to work with individuals or couples that are not able to come into my office for counseling sessions due to distance, weather, or other issues that prevent them from traveling.

I work days, evenings, and weekends to better meet the needs of my clients. I look forward to working with you to help you reach your goals.

We also offer the services of a Nurse Practitioner that will help our clients with their medication through GeneOMind. This will reduce the amount of side effects the client experiences by getting the right medications prescribed the first time

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

Every one of us thrives on validation and feeling significant. In counseling, we discover tools and skill sets that help each individual understand and focus on their goals in life and how this creates purpose and direction in every aspect of the healing process in order to get back on track and live the life we want.
