About

“In Chinese, the word Crisis is composed of 2 characters, one representing danger and another representing opportunity,” but have you sat back recently and wondered where the opportunity in this situation is? Have you ever wondered where the “silver lining” everyone talks about is? Sometimes that “silver lining” is behind clouds so thick that we are just waiting for it to pour. I know that feeling can be daunting, but I also know that pouring rain can be refreshing once those clouds open. And I have learned that bracing for the rain together is better than battling the storm alone.
I invite you to explore navigating the hazards, risks, and unknowns ahead while exploring the opportunities together. With experience working with young adults and adults as they work through the stages of change, I know that a listening ear and a patient advocate can make all the difference when things do not seem to click.
Let us work together in developing personal goals to address issues related to substance use, self-esteem, anxiety, depression, and significant life transitions. With an afternoon schedule and a passion for focusing on your strengths, I look forward to connecting and exploring your goals together.
