My Approach to Helping

In my career, I've had the privilege of working with people from all walks of life, spanning from children to older adults. I've provided mental health and substance abuse counseling in various settings, including individual sessions, group therapy, and family counseling. While in therapy, we've tackled a wide range of challenges, from anxiety and depression to trauma and relationship issues.

My passion lies in addiction counseling, where I've gained extensive knowledge and experience in supporting individuals through their journey to recovery. I also bring a compassionate understanding of psychiatric medication and community-based resources for those facing addiction. In our sessions, I draw from a toolbox of therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), tailoring our work to your unique needs and preferences. Above all, I'm driven by a deep commitment to your mental and emotional well-being. It brings me great joy to help you discover your inner strengths and believe in your ability to overcome challenges and achieve your dreams. Because sometimes, all it takes is having someone who believes in you!
