I have been in private practice at the same location over twenty-five years. I describe my therapeutic perspective as Solution-Focused, Insight-Oriented psychotherapy. My practice is general psychotherapy, but I use Hypnosis when clients consent to, or request this technique. I use hypnosis with clients presenting with various issues. It has been a useful tool. Most clients report leaving the session feeling more relaxed and report positive changes throughout treatment.
Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, LPC-S, NCC, CTMH, CCATP
I view counseling as a collaborative relationship between the client and the counselor. This collaborative relationship allows the client and therapist to work together to address issues the client is facing through the development of mutually agreed upon clinical and personal goals. During therapy, I focus on patterns of thoughts, behaviors, moods, and communication that may contribute to client distress. I often address these issues utilizing Person-Centered, Systems, Cogitative Behavior Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing (evidenced-based therapeutic practices).
Sometimes our thoughts and feelings result in actions which conflict with our deepest desires. We find ourselves in a deep pit filled with thoughts we cannot seem to stop, or feelings we cannot express or doing things which do not help achieve our goals. I offer telemental health or online counseling through a HIPAA compliant platform called Simple Practice. You are able to see, talk, and or message me with either your computer, tablet or smart phone. Together, we will search for alternative solutions which enable movement from the "no-way-out pit" to reaching our life purposes.
I will help you identify your strengths and develop effective solutions to the issues, patterns, thoughts and actions you are experiencing in your life.

I see counseling as a process in which I and my clients will build a trusting relationship that will allow us to work together, explore and process present and past situations.
