Are your days consumed with worry, fear or depression? Do you feel as though life is getting you down? Are you struggling with stress or anxiety? All of these things can affect our ability to function and enjoy life to its fullest. Counseling can help. I assist individuals of all ages, adolescents, teens, college students and adults in navigating difficult situations. I provide a welcoming, safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. Talking about our worries, struggles or vulnerabilities can seem scary, but getting help doesn't have to be!

What makes counseling work? A study found that resilience, relationship and faith make a difference. Together we can figure out your capacity for resilience - yes you have a capacity for change. One of the best things about counseling is building relationship. You can't know someone without allowing them to know you. Building that relationship is my primary focus and greatest strength. Believing that change is possible and using that belief can help your process. What are your values and beliefs? How do they guide you? I use my faith in my process, I will encourage you to use yours, whatever it may be - all are welcome.

I began my career providing counseling services in a substance abuse treatment center and have continued to specialize in these issues. Substance abuse and addiction are confusing to those that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, addiction, OR from recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a much shorter time frame.

I work with adults and teens going through difficult times, who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, or the effects of past trauma. Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, their family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.
