about me

    My Biography

    I believe you have the power to make the changes you seek. There are times in our lives when we feel disempowered and disconnected from ourselves and others. I am here to walk with you on your journey towards healing.

    I will provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can work toward your own personal empowerment to overcome your struggles.

    I have experience working with those who struggle with Substance Abuse, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Depression, and Trauma. My primary therapeutic modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.However, I work collaboratively with my clients to provide the most effective interventions possible based on their needs.

    My approach is to tailor therapy to each client’s individual needs. I treat adults with concerns about business/school performance and creativity, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, childhood sexual or physical abuse, adult trauma, alcohol/drug problems, PTSD, codependency, adult children of alcoholics, and self-esteem.

    Prior stressful events can contribute to the stress we experience now. This can lead to frustration, feeling defeated, compulsive behavior to cope (e.g., drinking/drug abuse, excessive efforts to please, overspending, overworking, avoiding, etc). Therapy helps you to identify the causes, gain control, and find solutions to enable increased confidence and peace of mind.

    Core Values

    I am committed to building safety with clients through connecting, compassion and caring.

    I seek to empower people of all ages to know themselves, to take ownership of their lives and to be authentic in relationships.

    My Mission

    Promote the professional development of counselors, advocate for the profession, and ensure ethical, culturally-inclusive practices that protect those using counseling services.
