About

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a combination of substance use treatment and individual and group mental health therapy experience that I have gained over the past ten years. I have assisted individuals with addiction, depression, anxiety, anger, relationship issues, grief/loss, and self-love through this process. An important part of the work that I do is helping individuals experience relief from past trauma and abuse while learning coping skills to help them navigate difficult situations and experiences in their daily life. I am here to support you. Contact me for your initial consultation.
I combine the use of evidenced based practices and techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Practices, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) to help you on your path to healing. I will work together with you providing support and encouragement as we go through this process.
You are an important part of the healing process. I believe in listening and assisting you in developing working solutions and addressing your needs while using an approach that works for you. My goal is to provide a safe setting for you to feel supported as you navigate change and regain hope in the healing process. Hope - Healing - Change.
