About Me

Have you been struggling with finding peace of mind? Are you tired of hunting for happiness and feel like living life every day has become a struggle? Have stress and anxiety taken over your life? Do you feel like things or relationships in your past, are casting a shadow on your future? Have you forgotten or are struggling to find what is unique, special and wonderful about you? Counseling may be the answer to helping you discover who are, what you want to become and develop a plan to build a brighter future.

In a society where we are judged by differences and weaknesses it is difficult to remember your strengths. I believe that every human being regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic background deserves to have a life filled with respect, love, contentment, and companionship and use several treatment modalities to help clients find learn to identify, appreciate and celebrate the multicolor facets that make them special. I do this using several treatment modalities tailored to fit the needs of the client. I offer client centered and solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral and cognitive processing therapies, existential and art therapies.

I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. I treat a wide range of mental health challenges including anxiety and stress, mood disorders, trauma, depression, sexuality, sexual identity, alternative lifestyles, coping with chronic illness, military family life, and life transitions. I have 30 years of working with couples, members of alternative lifestyles, service members, families and support system members.

I want to collaborate with you to create a Therapeutic plan for positive outcomes. My approach is eclectic, eccentric, creative, nerdy and tailored to the needs of each individual. I want to help you develop ways to cope with life’s struggles and process old triggers holding you back so that they can rediscover happiness and a sense of wonder in your world.
