About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. I am passionate about healing the whole person and enjoy helping others journey toward both emotional and physical wellbeing. I have experience providing counseling to individuals and families in a variety of settings and a range of treatment focus areas including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, vocational counseling, cancer recovery, body image, cultural issues, trauma, stress management, and adjustment to medical illness and disability.

My counseling style is warm and collaborative. I believe in that my clients have all that they need within themselves to create the changes that they desire in their lives. My goal is to help you discover and unleash that potential. My approach combines person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, and psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

Taking that first step towards any new goal is often the hardest, but I'm here to help and empower you when you are ready. I look forward to working with you!
