I work with individuals fifteen years of age and older to overcome issues of mood disorders, like depression and anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, behavioral addictions as well as difficult life transitions. The greatest need clients often face is to gain a clear perspective and solid goals to address their struggles. My primary goal is to help my clients reach a point of no longer needing therapy, by getting to the root of the challenges, giving practical tools they can use every day to maintain a mentally healthy life. I am also a clinical supervisor, providing clinical supervision to Limited Licensed Professional Counselors.
I offer a unique perspective in assisting clients in altering their life. I take a deep dive into Negative Core Beliefs & the formative experiences behind them as well as how they impact the client - whether struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression or behavioral addictions. All therapy is done in an environment of caring and compassion without judgment.
My desire and why I chose to be a therapist, is to help. The greatest privilege a client can give me is to allow me to walk beside them as they seek and achieve the change in their life the way they want. Sometimes I am just a listening ear or an affirming voice, but always the client's greatest champion. Whatever you need from therapy I am happy help.

I approach each client with unconditional positive regard, allowing for each client to present and share their life story. I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, specifically with focus on how Negative Core Beliefs (nCBs) develop, how they influence one's way of seeing themselves and the world. We address thinking and reactions created by nCBs by experientially challenging them in life.
