About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Mental Health Service Provider (LPC-MHSP) with over 12 years in experience. I specialize in helping clients to overcome daily life concerns, including physical, mental, and emotional abuse, anxiety, anger, depression, coping with grief, family issues, conflict resolution, midlife changes/crisis, low self esteem, and self care, so that they can once again live purposeful and joy-filled lives. Having overcome life-altering losses or stressors of my own, I have given the tools to help others do the same.
My approach to counseling is meeting the client where he/she is, being open, honest and compassion.I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), Brief Focused Solution Therapy, and Mindfulness/Meditation. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
