About Me

My name is Dawn and I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor, and a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor for about 8 years now. I have worked with clients in day treatment programs, as well as outpatient programs, with a wide variety of concerns including substance use disorder, depression, bi-polar, anxiety and panic, struggles with self esteem, borderline personality disorder, as well as other mood disorders.
My counseling style is person centered, with a focus of building a strong rapport. I have a warm personality that encourages a balance of acceptance and change. I will walk alongside of you all of the way of your therapeutic journey, and help you meet your desired goals. My approach is derived from the use of CBT, REBT, DBT, and motivational interviewing, and tailored to fit your personal needs as there are many paths to healing.
It takes time to heal, it takes work to heal, but it takes you to make the first step. You will not have to walk alone, you deserve that.

Dawn is the best. She is so easy to talk to and makes you feel heard and seen. I am always very comfortable talking with her.

Dawn is great at listening and asking great questions. She doesn’t pressure you on what to talk and is overall a great counselor.

Dawn has been a light in a moment of darkness for me. I am just a few short weeks into my sessions with her and I am feeling my natural energy and confidence coming back already. That has a lot to do with her guidance. I am excited to continue on my journey with her help. ❤️
