Choosing to enter into counseling is not an easy decision. My main goals as a therapist are: 1. To provide the client with a safe environment in order to help them feel comfortable expressing themselves. 2. To gather as much information as possible in order to address their unique needs and provide the best counseling. 3. To utilize a variety of approaches and tailor the counseling to each individual to help the client reach their full potential. Being flexible, knowledgeable and open as a therapist is important. I participate in continuing education on a regular basis in order to provide relevant counseling for my clients.

I have been counseling clients of all ages with a wide variety of issues since 2003. I have advanced training in substance abuse & gambling addiction. WillowsEdge has therapists who have expertise working with children thru older adults as well as families. Visit www.WillowsEdge.net for more information.

Our counseling practice offers more than traditional counseling. WillowsEdge provides art therapy, art and healing arts workshops, seminars and educational consulting to help clients gain strategies and tools to help them become successful learners. Both WillowsEdge locations have a non-clinical atmosphere to help our clients feel at home.
