My Approach to Helping
If you have been struggling with anxiety, depression, recovering from a trauma, or you are having relationship problems, then I would like to help you. Maybe there is something else that has been bothering you or maybe you are just under some stress and need someone to talk to. Give me a call or send me an email and I will respond promptly to schedule a brief meet and greet explaining how I can help you find healing and growth.
I have worked extensively with veterans and their families from all branches of the military as well as those with anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress (PTSD), and personality diagnoses. I am an integrative counselor, meaning I use counseling tools from many different theories. I will work with you to design the most helpful treatment plan that will meet your needs.
No matter what you are struggling with, let’s talk about it. I will work with you to come up with a plan to be where you want to be.

- Our rates are affordable and we can take insurance, which means you may only have to pay a small copay.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Going to a counselor is a big step for many people. We often try to fix the problem on our own or we just bury it beneath the surface. Unfortunately though, the problem does not just go away and it begins to impact other areas of our lives. Often times, our loved ones are the first ones to notice that there is something bothering us and they encourage us to talk to someone. Once we finally admit that we need to get help, (which is a huge step, by the way!), then the question is what do I do next?
My encouragement to you is to do your research and don't settle. Make sure you find someone that you feel that you can connect with. If you start meeting with a therapist and it is not working for you then please do not just stop getting counseling. Find another counselor. Too many people have told me that they have just dealt with their problems because they tried counseling at one point in their lives but they stopped because it did not work for them.
Please know that counselors are an instrument, or a tool that can help you bring about change. If the instrument is not doing the job then find the right one. I would like to help you in that process. Before we sign up for our first session, let's talk about your concerns and I will point you in the right direction- whether that is with me or another counselor.
