About

As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Addictions Counselor and Rehabilitation Counselor with 18 years of clinical experience, I have a desire to learn an individual’s strengths, needs, abilities & preferences by providing counseling to clients from age 18 plus, from most all walks of life. I utilize proven methods addressing issues with Substance Use Disorders, PTSD, Depression and Anxiety. My personal journey achieving wellness facilitates an added level of empathy and optimism, while concurrently allows for exploring and addressing incongruencies in behaviors in a manner which enhances the client’s desired outcome.
My approach uses dialogue with open-ended questions and answers to build rapport. Coupled with other frameworks, the combination enhances pathways towards effecting a desire to change. I want my client’s to believe I’m there to pull alongside them to identify/address barriers to wellness. I provide ongoing support and maintenance throughout the relationship.
As a Rehabilitation Counselor, I believe in the value of employment or other activities as a component of wellness. One of my stronger qualities is promoting self-advocacy through self-awareness. A goal I have during therapy is to have the client I am working with walking away from a session with a desire to want to return to continue the work we began!
