About Me

In my 17 years of counseling experience, I've worked with children (and their parents extensively), adolescents, and adults of all ages in primarily individual therapy. I have a small private practice and I am also an assistant professor of counseling at a state university. My forte is helping adults from 18 to 60 years old heal, cope and grow from family-of-origin issues, relationship concerns, parenting issues, identity issues (including sexual orientation and gender identity), depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, addiction, and abuse. I worked for 9 years in a university counseling center and thus I have helped a lot of young to middle-aged adults through many of life's challenges. I believe that my clients have their own answers and power within themselves but they often need an understanding, kind and wise ear in order to sift through the fog and negativity to find the beauty and truth that lies within. I believe that a trusting, empathetic, and supportive relationship between the counselor and the client is crucial to our work together.

Because of my clinical experience and the positive results my clients have attained, I know I can help you to: find direction and meaning in life; overcome shame and self-defeating behaviors; develop insight and awareness about yourself and your world; and most importantly- collaborate with you to make the changes you seek in order to become the person you were meant to be.

I look forward to engaging with you via electronic communication initially and then through video sessions which are most effective. Please be aware that I will do my best to respond to subscriber messages within 1-2 business days, quicker if it's urgent. Whomever you choose to work with via BetterHelp, I encourage you to be as open and honest as you can be and also diligent and patient too. Best to you...
