About

I am a licensed mental health professional with over ten years of experience working with adults not much unlike you. My focus has been supporting people diagnosed with chronic and persistent mental health issues, people in recovery from substance use disorders and other addictions, those who have experienced childhood or other traumas, families or partners in conflict, and those struggling with acceptance. I consider my scope of expertise to be anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship/family conflict, relationships, challenges with boundaries, existential issues, career direction, and addictions.
I take pride in my work and am focused on results, but not at the detriment of the therapeutic relationship between myself and the client(s). I am well versed in several counseling techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, and Person-Centered therapy. My disposition is that of having a compassionate approachable demeanor.
I would be honored to serve as a guide and support to you on this journey. I am results-focused which means that I seek to get you to your goals, but never at the risk of compromising the therapeutic relationship between you and I. You can expect a non-judgmental and accepting space where you can achieve your goals.
