About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) with over 6 years of clinical experience. I have worked in a variety of settings, including in-home, outpatient, and residential programs to provide individual, family, couple, and group services. I have had experience with various mental health concerns, with my specialties including addictions & recovery counseling; mood disorders, including depression and anxiety; and behavioral disorders. My experience also includes treatment of children, adolescents, and adults.

My counseling style is client-centered and reflective in a way that fosters intrinsic motivation and increased understanding of self. I believe the foundation for therapy lies in the quality of the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist; and I strive to create a safe environment that promotes openness, trust, and support. My approach and expertise are rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to increase awareness, identification, and management of one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; with emphasis on individualized treatment based on needs, preferences, and goals.

Taking the first step to ask for help is one that I respect and admire. It showcases vulnerability and strength, willingness and hope; and I would be honored to support and assist you in your change process. I look forward to learning more about you and your goals.
