My Approach to Helping

Hello, I am a first-generation American of multinational heritage. I have been a licensed counselor for more than 16 years, working with those struggling with change and misfortune. A prior career focus in engineering and service in the United States Coast Guard has taught me the importance of structure, focus, and pragmatically working towards goals. Experience as a long-term caregiver has made me keenly aware of how moments of vulnerability can occupy attention, impact one’s ability to effectively cope, and inhibit movement towards desired goals.

I work in a collaborative and person-centered manner. I specialize in CBT, Narrative, and Solution-Focused counseling methods to help clients effectively manage feelings of depression and anxiety. Sessions are designed to help clients develop healthy coping skills, increase self-awareness, and uncover inner strength. Through drawing attention towards the present and future possibilities, I help clients feel empowered during times of adversity and transition.
