My Approach to Helping
I have wanted to be a counselor for as long as I can remember. As an Adult Child of an Alcoholic, I have wanted to help people with addiction issues because I could not help my own parents. Throughout my training and life experience, I have learned many different approaches to helping. I found that being genuine, direct, empathetic, and nonsense has made the most impact on those I help. Addiction is just one of my areas of treatment. I treat a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, grief, divorce, family conflict, and LGBTQI issues just to name a few.

What Makes up a Problem?
A problem is generally defined as a "situation that is unwelcome or harmful that needs to be dealt with." Problems are different for each person. Moreover, if a situation arises that causes you to feel some type of way, then it needs to be addressed. Through counseling, you can explore your problems and perhaps gain insight or develop solutions to deal with problems.
