I am a counselor with over 10 years of experience working with clients. I started my career working with adults as a career counselor and transitioned to working with adults, teens, and families. I specialize in trauma and adoption issues, depression, anxiety, and career issues. I worked for several years as a victim advocate for people involved in domestic abuse situations.
I use a relational approach that is warm and interactive. I will be direct with clients as needed, but I prefer to let them drive sessions and decide which direction to take. I am always open to feedback from clients and encourage you to be honest about what is working or not working for you.
I look forward to working with you!

She seemed great we only had one session and seemed to know to dig deep into what I needed to know about myself, unfortunately I couldn’t find out for unforeseen situation but I bet she would’ve been able to help me get to where I needed.
