As a Licensed Professional Counselor serving children, teens, and adults, I believe people seek counseling because they want to make a change in their lives. They may want to improve a life situation, solve a problem, make a decision, or achieve a greater understanding of life. Anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and social issues often accompany the desire to change. I am here to help you identify and work through these challenges by finding practical solutions to them. Counseling is a joint effort, where I support and encourage your hard work, courage, and commitment to create the life you desire.

I have experience working in clinical, home, and online settings. My training includes cognitive behavioral, rational emotive, family systems, and play therapy. Once we establish an understanding of your situation, we work together to achieve mutually agreed upon goals.

In addition to counseling, I also specialize in Weight Loss Surgery Consulting for clients considering, preparing for, or who have undergone surgery. My services address the social, psychological and physical challenges and opportunities of weight loss surgery by offering practical tools and strategies. Please contact me to learn more.
