About me

Hello! If you are exploring Better Help, it is likely that you wanting to address something significant in your life or you may feel that you need a tune up on an old issue that has re-emerged. Finding the right person to help you through these challenges is very important. Your level of connection and comfort with your counselor has been shown to be the best indicator of success. Here is a bit of information about me in order to help you decide if my experience and style are the right match and the best fit for you.

I have been a licensed clinical social worker for 10 years and have experience working with people from all different backgrounds who are struggling with a wide variety of challenges. Much of my experience has been working with people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, military and Veteran specific needs, and financial stress.. With the work that we will do together, it is important that my clients start to feel a sense of control and progress. My style is warm, direct, nonjudgmental and client centered. My goal is to empower you to be the best version of yourself.

I can interact with you in whatever manner you are most comfortable. I offer messaging, live chat, phone or video sessions with availability in the evenings and weekends. I check messages at least once during each weekday.

I know that finding a counselor is just the first step on your journey. I would be my honor and privilege to work with you to ensure you keep taking the steps you need towards success.
