The broadest definition of “wellness” includes physical, emotional, intellectual, occupational, social, spiritual, financial, and environmental wellness, and these areas of our lives are always interconnected. My ideal client is one who is experiencing heightened stress in one or more of these areas and recognizes the benefits of seeking outside help. Whether one's stress relates to age and stage in life or out-of-the-ordinary circumstances, I can help clients acquire the coping skills and problem resolution necessary for living well.

The decision to enter into a counseling relationship is the first step toward emotional wellness and wellness in general. With nearly 30 years of experience working with all age groups in a variety of settings, I am a license-eligible Resident in Counseling and a seasoned professional. I enjoy working with individuals, groups, couples, and families.

Together we will work toward developing trust and rapport in a nonjudgmental, safe, and supportive environment. Given that there is no “one size fits all” counseling approach, I will rely upon an eclectic, strengths-based approach that utilizes appropriate tools and techniques to empower you to resolve stressful problems and live a life of holistic wellness.
