I am passionate about walking alongside others to pursue holistic wellness in an empowering and compassionate manner. I am a licensed mental health and addictions counselor using a strengths-based and solution-focused approach. If you are ready for some positive changes in your life for optimal wellness, let's work together! I am goal-oriented and solution-focused. I want to develop a strategy with you to get to the root of the concern, not simply surface-level change.
My counseling approach is strengths-based and solution-focused, adapted to the unique needs and goals of clients. I have training in EMDR and RRT (Rapid Resolution Therapy) as well as many other evidence-based practices. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in counseling and sociology and a Master of Science degree in clinical mental health counseling from Grace College. I have counseling experience in a variety of areas, including depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, relationship issues, grief and spiritual concerns. I've work with individuals, children, adolescents, families, and couples for over 8 years. I want to guide you in getting to the root of the concern and focusing on holistic, optimal wellness. There is hope. You are not alone. You are worth the investment!
