My Approach to Helping

Since I was a child, I had a strong desire to become a helping professional.  My path was made clear when I discovered and fell in love with the field of psychology.  I have worked in the helping professions for the past 20 years, gaining knowledge and experience providing therapeutic services not only in private
practice, but in criminal justice, social services, and correctional settings as well. 

In addition to generalized professional experience, I have extensive, specialized training in trauma, grief, co-occurring disorders (mental health and substance use), and anxiety.  I am equipped to serve individuals, groups, couples, and families.  

I truly view my role as a therapist as a life calling and I take my responsibility toward my work and each client very seriously.

I look forward to collaborating with you to help you become the person you were meant to be.  Let's get to work!

More Info About My Practice

Counseling is meant to be a highly individualized process, shaped and defined by the client's needs and expectations.  It is important that, from the very beginning, I have a clear understanding of what your values and concerns are, and how I can best serve you as you work toward achieving your goals.

My role as a therapist is to provide an environment that is complementary and supplementary to each client's work.  That means that, at all times, I will accept you as you are and be respectful of your rights, your time, and your position as architect and navigator of your journey.  I will continually work to build and establish trust with you, being transparent and genuine during our interactions, so that you feel safe and comfortable enough to do the very important work ahead of you.
