About Me

Greetings and welcome to my practice!

I am a 20 year veteran in the field of human services stemming from social services work inpatient and outpatient therapy. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and Adult ADHD. I also helped many people who experience anger issues and past trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is person-centered, warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone I encounter with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach includes but are not limited to, a combination of solution-focused, supportive, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and motivational Interviewing. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

As you take those courageous steps towards change, I will be alongside you to guide, support, motivate, and encourage you towards a more fulfilling and happier life.

I look forward to working with you!
