I have helped clients work through challenges such as depression, anxiety, in addition to relationship concerns,such as physical, emotional, psychological, sexual and domestic abuse .
"At the heart of counseling is listening, the experience of being heard and accepted that enables growth and change" (Toller, 1999).There are times in life when individuals feel stuck, overwhelmed with life's challenges, and perhaps not knowing what the next steps are to make the changes we desire for a balanced and fulfilling life. I believe the individual is complex and unique, as is his or her life story, challenges, and concerns. I work with you to discover your inner strengths, which in turn will help you work through your specific life challenges.

Welcome! Making the decision to seek out therapy can be a big one, and sometimes scary. Take a deep breath, you've got this! Perhaps you are struggling with anxiety, depression, difficulty coping with big feelings, irritability or angry outbursts, difficulty focusing, peer conflict or difficulty maintaining relationships, explosive or defiant behaviors, hyperactivity, or decreased motivation. You may have experienced trauma, whether it be a natural disaster, accident, or abuse . Many clients I see commonly work on developing coping skills, processing trauma, enhancing relationships, managing difficult behaviors, and so much more!

I have experience in providing substance abuse counseling to adolescent and adult populations.
I have faith in the idea that people can, and do change. In my experience, change is not always a linear process. Often, when trying to change a situation or behavior, people fall short or stumble. Being able to truly evaluate an individual's strengths and building upon those, allows for the needed empowerment to overcome our barriers. I am passionate about helping individuals to overcome various behavioral health concerns. Whether you are facing addiction, anxiety, anger issues, grief, stress, depression or trauma, I use a strengths based approach, coupled with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to build upon your inherit resiliency to affect change.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
