My Approach to Helping

Whether you are experiencing emotional distress or a conflicted relationship, connecting with a counselor will absolutely help! I work with individuals and couples. My specialty areas include PTSD, depression, anxiety, parenting, emotional eating/eating disorders, behavior management relationship challenges, improving communication, gaining and maintaining personal power and increasing self-esteem/self-worth.

Additionally, one of my specialties is Health Counseling, which is designed to help you change the behaviors that contribute to health challenges. Start taking better care of yourself by working through the underlying emotions and ways of thinking that are making it difficult for you too change unhealthy behaviors.

Close the gap between who you are now and the person you want and imagine yourself to be. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions.

More Info About My Practice

I am able to accept a number of different insurances. My sessions prices are $80-$100 per session, but I do offer a sliding scale. Please feel free to call with questions.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have a lot of experience working with people who have experienced a variety of trauma, which can include spousal abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse and emotional abuse. Trauma can often times leave people feeling very powerless. I work with them to help them reclaim their power and reclaim their lives.

Outside of trauma, my focus is to help my clients understand themselves better, and to reclaim their personal power.
