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.
