Some of the services I have assisted my clients with include trauma recovery, coping skills for anxiety and depression, anger management skills, substance abuse treatment and family communication.
Unfortunately, I am not currently accepting any new clients at this time. "BE STRONG because things will get better. It may be stormy now, but it never lasts forever." Strength is something we all need help with at times. It is my goal to guide clients through stressful and difficult times in order to help them develop the skills and perspective necessary to manage the constant struggles life hands us all. Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Regret, Guilt, Shame and Addiction are things that can be coped with in order to move on.

I incorporate child-centered play therapy with young children as well as Adlerian and behavioral concepts with parents.

The need for counseling is not evidence that you're a problem. It's evidence that you're a human being. And as far as I can tell, counseling is for human beings. Because if you're like me, you have legitimate needs, limits, complex feelings and desires, hopes, dreams, as well as disasters and dis-ease and pain. We need one another to navigate the uncertainty of this shared humanity. Typically, my clients are looking more for understanding and presence-within-the-pain than for relief and escape -- though, that's part of an honest struggle at times as well. I am honored to be on this journey with you.

I offer a unique approach to addiction treatment through the lense of Attachment Theory and Family Systems.
Each client brings their individual stories into the room. By the time we seek help, life has typically not been going as we expected. In the middle of addiction, our lives became unmanageable and we were in need of help. We want to find a way out, but are unsure how to do so. What we need is someone to help us be a guide through to recovery. This is a life-long change that will need continued support. Not only is this our battle, but the battle of those around us.
