About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I focus my work on those that need guidance with mental health needs and substance use. My goal is to support the client in personal growth and encourage them to find strength and empowerment to be successful in their treatment. I believe in providing a safe space for the client to express any thoughts or emotions without the risk of judgment. I promote person-centered care with each client, as well as an integrative approach to counseling to meet the client where they are. My treatment areas of specialty include anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), grief, stress management and substance use disorder (SUD). I have experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). In my free time I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends.



Believe you can and you're halfway there.

For the first time, I have a safe space to share my feelings and feel validated every time. She has helped me tremendously just over the last couple months.

I've never felt completely comfortable with therapy until now. She listens and really hears what I'm saying. She asks questions that prompts me to truly think and make connections between my thought processes and behaviors. I was so weary of going into counseling again but I'm so glad that I did. I feel like she's helping me to really process and get somewhere with things. Best decision I've made for not just myself but my family.
