I am a Licensed Practical Counselor with over 20 years of experience working as a professional counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addiction, parenting problems, trauma and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse due to domestic violence.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. However, I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
