My Approach to Helping

You can't wait until life isn't hard anymore before you decide to be happy - Nightbirde.

My job as your therapist is to build trust, rapport to help my client start living their life. I use an eclectic approach to our sessions by working with the client to create the best plan of action to start the healing. I have over 20 years of experience in education as a coach, teacher, and school counselor and now as an LPC, I want to work with you to break the stigma of mental health. I am trained in DBT, CBT, Solution Focus, Mindfulness, and Gottman Couples counseling. I enjoy working with ages 13 years to Adults who might present with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, abuse, trauma, couplesrelationship issues, self-esteem, anger management, career, or sports. Along the way, my hope is to communicate warmth, empathy, and non-judgment to the person sharing their story with me.
