About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a certified LPC Supervisor with over 24 years of experience in providing counseling services. My earlier experience as a teacher, both secondary and post-secondary, laid the foundation for my passion for education, life-long learning, and the capacity for personal evolvement. In addition to the MA in Counseling, I hold an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership and have served as director of Counseling Services as well as university Dean of Student Development. My experience in education has contributed to my belief in personal growth and development, and teaching self-efficacy skill building is a cornerstone of my counseling service. I borrow Baxter Magolda’s theory of self-authorship along the life span and apply it in my counseling. Her metaphor of riding a tandem bicycle is particularly applicable to my practice. My interpretation is that the client is the driver of the counseling experience. They steer and dictate the direction for the session. As the second rider, I provide appropriate information, energy, encouragement, and guidance.
My primary modalities for therapy are cognitive-behavioral, client centered, reality therapy, and motivational interviewing. However, I appreciate the client’s integrity and I adapt my techniques according to their needs. I have worked with individuals with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger management challenges, relationship conflict, career exploration, eating disorders, self-esteem, grief and loss, panic disorder, sexual orientation and gender identity, and academic skill building. In general, my role as a counselor is to assist the client in conceptualizing the concern, defining objectives for change, and identifying appropriate interventions.
I look forward to meeting you, listening to you, and assisting you in defining goals to achieve self-authorship in your life.
