About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor with 16+ years experience providing inpatient and outpatient counseling and crisis intervention with experiencing substance abuse and mental health issues. I specialize in working with adults from late teens to older men and women experiencing substance use disorders, depression, trauma, grief and improvement of mindfulness. I have a passion for helping people become the best version of themselves. I also have a sense of humor and find it to be helpful in the therapeutic process. I am known for building a good rapport with clients and I look forward to gaining your trust as you work through your issues. Typical treatment modalities in my work with clients includes Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and Client centered (deep listening and non-directive) approaches.

Appointments are typically held weekly and you will be able to see my availability on the schedule that is posted. Don't hesitate to reach out about scheduling or any other questions, as they arise. Again, I'm so glad you have taken this first step. I believe, with support and guidance, you can make great progress. I look forward to accompanying you on this journey!

I appreciate my time with her. She helped me realize how I should phrase my concerns to my employer when I was having issues with them. It helped me get on better terms with my employer. When she started sessions, she would start with how my week was with a back-and-forth like you would with a friend. I appreciate my time with her.

Arlene is very flexible and sensitive to my counseling needs. I am confident in her expertise and feel that I am getting the whole of her skills when we meet. She is caring and thoughtful yet insightful on her advice. I benefit tremendously from our sessions; in that I know I am meeting my goals with her feedback and coaching. Arlene has mentored me to find my "voice" and I am very grateful for her direction and support.
