I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional with over 10 years of experience. I enjoy working with a variety of clients from all walks of life and have specialized training in perinatal mental health, trauma, substance abuse, and career counseling. I am an ALLY trained, culturally competent therapist, with years of experience in helping individuals from marginalized groups.
My clinical passion is in assisting individuals in finding their own true strengths and empowering themselves. As a counselor, I enjoy meeting new people, motivating them towards positive change, and helping them find and implement their own solutions. Professionally, I utilize cognitive analytic, solution-focused brief therapy approaches to help clients formulate and find success in their own goals. Trauma informed practices and motivational interviewing techniques are essential in this approach. I bring my own background of teaching and coaching into the clinical arena in helping individuals explore new alternatives and solutions that work for them individually, as I believe each person brings his or her own unique challenges and strengths into the therapy environment.

She’s the jam in my jelly roll. 5 stars. Extremely helpful thoughtful and adapts to new information. I’m a fan and would recommend to anyone looking for a therapists that understands anxiety, depression and the challenges of family/parenting on mental health.
She is extremely helpful with the issues I want help with and gives me good tools on how to approach dealing with them. She also give me more than one option so I can see what works best for me and I really appreciate that. I would 100% recommend Eileen to others looking into counseling.
Eileen has been the best thing that happened to me in the past year. After going through life changing traumatic events in the middle of a pandemic, I didn’t know what to do. I decided that I needed to have answers to questions that would come from a mental health professional. The minute I matched with Eileen I knew she was supportive, encouraging, open, and genuinely wanted to get to know me so she could help me learn about myself and make sense of how the events in my life have impacted my mental health. But more importantly to me, Eileen is honest and holds no qualms with calling me out when I revert to old habits. I definitely notice that while actively applying the resources, activities, and mindsets recommended by Eileen, I am walking through life with a more positive outlook. I feel better about the person I am, rather than believing I am the person everyone else thinks I am. Without Eileen, I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through this year.
Eileen is absolutely amazing! With her help I have been able to take some big steps to better my mental health in such a short time. She listens to what I have to say and challenges some of my thinking(in a good way!) which helps me to really walk through my thoughts and break them down to help understand them and make necessary changes. I feel extremely lucky to have been matched with her as my therapist.
Working with Eileen feels like confiding in a good friend - but one who is really realistic with wanting the best for you, she provides a safe and comfortable space, is compassionate and has good humor, while being very honest and helpful in guiding me to help understand and improve myself. She leads me to awesome resources and gives me great worksheets to use to help me get clear on my feelings and experiences and how I can live a healthy, meaningful, valuable, fulfilling life. She has helped me to grow so much over the past few months and I am excited to see how much more progress we can make together
I absolutely love my sessions with Eileen! She has so much knowledge to share and really listens to what I have to say. She has taught me many things that have helped me get a grip and better my mental health!
Eileen is a great listener. She works with you to help you overcome your struggles, and tries to get to the root of what is bothering you. She also has a great arsenal of mental exercises to help you overcome negative thoughts. I am very glad I was paired with her, and want people to know that if you are struggling, Eileen has your back ^_^
Every session that I have had with Eileen has been thought provoking and informative. While we are still in the infancy of the process, I feel very good about the process and look forward to the results.
