About Me

I want to help clients in their efforts towards becoming the best version of themselves. Through non-judgmental listening, I support clients by helping them to 1) identify their goals, and 2) develop a plan for monitoring and evaluating progress towards those goals. In the first phase of the process, I will provide nonjudgmental listening. We will talk about your goals, challenges, and overall well-being. You should feel empowered to be honest (and vulnerable) with regards to your thoughts and feelings: I won't judge you. In the second phase, we will monitor progress towards goals, and the third phase will focus on the development of a plan to sustain gains made during therapy and what to do when setbacks occur.

To give you a bit of background about me, I want to mention my roles. My primary career role is that of an educator. I teach full-time and devote additional time to my role as a clinician. (I'm also a mother of an only child, which is a very important and meaningful role as well.) My clinical experiences in rehabilitation and mental health counseling have included: homelessness, bereavement, sexual assault, smoking cessation, employee assistance, higher education, and vocational rehabilitation. I earned my Master's Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling in 2005 and my PhD in Rehabilitation Counselor Education in 2011. I am highly skilled in workplace issues and career development.
