My Approach to Helping
Life can be challenging and painful. Relationships break. Your self-esteem may suffer, and life can feel lonely and lacking. A history of trauma can challenge your most cherished values, and can drain your coping skills. This pain can touch every area of your life.
I know that pain can be healed. I am a licensed professional counselor who embraces holistic methods that focus on belief systems, emotions, relationships, spirituality, and health. I offer counseling services for women, men, couples, and teens in a safe and confidential environment. I specialize in helping people navigate the challenges of addiction, interventions, depression, OCD, grief, eating disorders, anxiety, incest, women's issues, infidelity, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
The choice of going into therapy does not mean a person is weak. Rather it means you have the courage to begin to change your life from the pain of surviving to a life of thriving. Choosing a therapist is crucial to the process. It is important to look for a therapist who has understanding and who can provide safe and confidential services. The supportive relationship I provide to my clients, which I combine with years of practice and counseling knowledge, offers a unique counseling experience where you feel heard, understood and hopeful. It is my goal to work with you in a holistic manner: Emotional, Relational, Cognitive/Behavioral, Spiritual and Health to achieve a life of balance.
