"My clinical training and professional background is in community counseling, with a focus on addictions, mental health disorders, and grief and trauma. I work with children (age 5 and up), adolescents, and adults. My therapeutic presence is naturally open, accepting, and warm. I am very goal-oriented with my clients, as I believe in making the therapeutic process as productive, solution-focused, and meaningful as possible. I do work with clients to gain insight into how experiences from the past inform their present, but I do this in a way that focuses on working toward solving problems in the here-and-now."

"Ideally, I want to create an environment that allows my clients to find their way, learn about themselves, and grow to be leaders in their treatment. The approaches I use give clients the ability to take the initiative, evaluate and then make a plan of action. Making the decision to enter into therapy is a challenge in itself. But in the end I want to meet the client where they are at and go from there. Where applicable I use Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, play therapy, career/coaching and other modalities in practice."

"How does anyone choose a therapist? The variety of options are daunting, and while many, many people have been to or go to a therapist, it is not a topic easily discussed, so it can be hard to find a recommendation. Many people resort to picking the person whose face looked nice, or went to a school they recognize, or work in a convenient location or accept their insurance. Often these techniques are sufficient, but when they are not it is a great loss, as it takes so much courage to look for a therapist in the first place."

"Life can be full of ups and downs. Sometimes the challenges we face can shake us and begin to disrupt our current day to day connections with others. Unconscious thoughts, childhood experiences, and daily interactions can impact thought processes influencing the way we view ourselves. Struggling to cope with these challenges can begin to create a negative sense of self. You begin to no longer see your true self worth. I practice utilizing a holistic, integrative approach, as I focus on the importance of helping individuals gain insight into the origins and meaning of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors."
