About Me

As a licensed mental health counselor, I believe we all have unique strengths that we can use to overcome the challenges of life. I would like to help you find and utilize these strengths to build a life that brings you fulfillment and joy. In our counseling relationship, I would work with you to identify areas of your life that you would like improve, whether that includes finding ways to feel happier, addressing a conflict with someone who is important to you, adapting to a new stage of life, grieving the loss of a loved one, or simply seeking to make a change.

I have expertise in helping clients deal with grief and loss, navigate health concerns, overcome addiction to alcohol and other drugs, and triumph over depression and anxiety. I work to address specific issues within the context of overall mental, physical, and spiritual health. I also focus on how personal identity, such as gender, culture, or sexual orientation, impacts life experiences.

Specifically, I utilize a person-centered approach, where the focus is on the intelligence, creativity, and perspective you bring to the therapy relationship. I also integrate components of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), and narrative therapy. My goal is to help you to tell your story, and then find the motivation and develop the skills you need to write your next life chapter.

My experience includes working in integrated care health centers and research-based clinical roles where I collaborate with a team of medical doctors, nurses, nutritionists, and other mental health professionals to provide truly holistic care. This experience has encouraged me to approach counseling with a focus on achieving positive outcomes. I also have experience integrating technology into counseling, and I believe technology resources are great tools for change.

I am interested helping you feel well, and I will welcome your active participation and feedback throughout our work together. On a platform such as BetterHelp, we can focus together on what is most important to you right now, and I would be very happy to hear from you.
