About

Battling emotional difficulties can be frightening and hard. Why? It's fear of the unexpected. My 30 years of experience (USN & DoD civilian) as an addiction counselor and clinical social worker taught me how to make this process less scary and easier. We can walk the path to overcoming your difficulty together. I'm experienced treating, trauma (PTSD) stress, anxiety, depression, anxiety, domestic/general violence, anger, and other issues. My specialty and passion, treating, veterans, first responders, and their significant others. I'm here to guide you through your therapy. Standing By Ready to assist
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating people with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is humanistic in nature with a cognitive-behavioral, and existential approach. We will tailor a therapy to meet your unique and specific needs.
My life experiences, my own active-duty service & being a veteran, I can empathize with active-duty military, veterans', public servants', and their families' However, I can also provide assistance for your emotional needs not associated with trauma. It takes courage, so I'll be your guide on the path to feeling better. Looking forward to meeting you.
