Sometimes life experiences can be overwhelming and burdensome to even the strongest person. Walking through life with the weight of the world and it’s problems, all the while pretending as if things are okay, can cause one to feel misunderstood, unheard, isolated or even alone. If this sounds familiar to you, you’ve probably been wearing your superhero cape for too long; and I’m here to help you take it off, even if only just to wash it. If you’re ready, it is my hope to cultivate a safe space for you to feel empowered enough to heal...
In therapy I will meet you where you are and help navigate through your current and past challenges. We begin by exploring your history, patterns of behavior, thought processes and relationships that have formed you thus far. Together we will build a therapeutic relationship and begin your path to wholeness.
"To change your reality, you must change your mentality" ~ Daniel Ally. Mentality is a way of thinking. The way a person thinks affects their beliefs, their beliefs affect their perceptions, their perceptions affect their decisions, their decisions affect their behaviors, and their behaviors affect their mental wellness. Your reality and who you are is driven by your mentality. I have foundational education in marriage and family therapy. I have extensive experience with couples, divorce, and blended families. Although couples and family are my specialty, I am available for individual therapy as well.
Drug & Alcohol Counselor, CACII, CAMS, CGS, SAP, MAC
My approach to healing is holistic; that is, I encourage clients to look at all areas of their lives, (physical, spiritual, emotional, and social) and do my best to assist them toward achieving the balance that I believe can promote long term, overall health. I believe that achieving this balance is an individualized process. My clients appreciate that I offer a ton of support and make them feel safe in therapy, yet don’t shy away from giving direct feedback and ideas, or challenging a thought or belief that might be getting in the way of progress.
"The past is for reference, not for residence". We will work together, briefly revisiting the past, to be better informed about your present. My therapeutic orientation is empowerment based, solution-focused and follows an ecological model of treatment, working with the person as a whole human being, not just its parts. This mindset fuels the therapeutic process. Within an atmosphere free of judgement, your intuitive process will be honored during our sessions.
I have worked with various clients with a multitude of issues that are primarily substance use related. In addition to substance use disorders, many also have family discord, loss of employment, housing and hope. Their goals are to gain coping skills, relapse prevention education, stress and anger management management to deal with past unresolved issues that includes and not limited to PTSD, child abuse abuse and neglect, life stressors, and to learn how to develop and sty connected to a supportive network while becoming productive in all areas of their lives.
It can never be easy to admit when we’re struggling in life, and often times, whether it’s family, friends, coworkers, and or other types of relationships, trying to untangle the balls of confusion and the uncertainty impacting our hearts, can be stressful. Moreover, it may even cause us sadness, worry and affect our ability to sleep at night. Other matters can also clinch at hearts, such as dealing with loss of a loved one, difficulties with life transitions, desiring an enriching fuller life, or even the realization that your child may be struggling. Given these points, if this is you, then you have come to the right place.
Difficulties in life are not relegated to specific individuals or certain families. Maybe you've encountered a difficult issue, that despite your best efforts, either persists or gets worse. During these moments one of two things can happen; continue to make the same mistakes or begin to explore appropriate solutions to manage your life.

Have you traveled and had to pack a bag? Over packed? Life is about packing and unpacking. Packed to much can become overwhelming, did not pack enough, a feeling of not being complete. My goal is to help you discover what has been weighing you down and how to pack only what you need.
My counseling style has always been focused on building a strong therapeutic alliance with my client. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My motto is that we all have bad situations in life (death, abuse, divorce, etc.) that we experience in life that can trigger some negative thoughts, emotional feelings, etc., and it is important to respond to these situations in a healthy manner or we tend to stay in that negative space longer than we ever intended.
