I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor in Wisconsin with over five years of experience helping families and individuals with their relationships, mental health, and addiction issues. I work with clients with addictions, anxiety, depression, parenting issues, grief, and overall life stress. I have a Trauma-informed Care Certificate from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and I help people with trauma issues stemming from emotional and physical abuse.
My counseling style is compassionate, warm, and engaging. I believe in removing barriers to treatment such as stigmatizing labels and respecting each person's unique strengths and goals. I start where the client is to help them navigate life's successes and challenges. I combine motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, humanistic and psychodynamic approaches to help clients live happier and more fulfilling lives. Our discussions will focus on the issues and topics that are relevant to you, and I will collaborate with you to meet your specific goals and needs.
I know that reaching out for help can be difficult and, change is never easy. If you are ready to begin the journey of living a happier and more fulfilling life, I am here to help you reach this goal.
I look forward to working with you!
