Congratulations on making the decision to search for a counselor. It is my belief that despite increasing awareness into the field of psychology and counseling, there still exists a pervasive stigma that can keep us from seeking the help we need. Making the decision to get into treatment can be very challenging but also very rewarding and I am dedicated to doing whatever I can for each client to make this transition as comfortable as possible. Additionally, it is my goal to meet the individual needs of each client as we all have different concerns, strengths, and experiences.

I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused, and Strength-Based techniques in my work. I also believe in the importance of taking care of your physical health in conjunction with mental health. I help to identify triggers to symptoms as well as creating healthier coping strategies and boundaries.

I believe that every person has a story. To tell that story and be deeply heard by a compassionate, supportive person, with no judgment, is the main work of therapy. Within my work with individuals, we build a relationship of trust, consistency, and commitment, while exploring roots and doing problem-solving together. I use a similar approach with couples and families, hearing each story of the individual, couple or family unit. I look at how these individuals have come together to form important ties with one another, and together we explore ways to create positive change within their relationships.

How satisfying is it to pull a weed from its roots. I think about this when I am gardening. If I am unsuccessful at pulling the weed from its roots and only remove the top layer, it satisfies for a short time, my garden looks okay, but sooner or later that weed re-appears. I relate this to the cycle in many of our own personal lives. Seeking therapy can be a daunting task; lets reduce the stigma and just talk. I believe the relationship between the therapist and client is of significant importance for effective change to occur. I am humbled when client's decide to share their own "personal stories" or experiences in life with me.
