I am specifically trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Trauma Focused -Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).
I provide confidential counseling services to adolescents and adults, in an environment of trust, acceptance and compassion. I use a client-centered approach to counsel individuals challenged by relationship issues, family conflict, school or work related stress, past trauma, and basic mental health issues. My guiding principles for counseling are to empower hope, encourage growth, and embrace change. I don’t think that people fit in boxes, and I approach therapy the same way.

I work with individuals, couples, and families.

By utilizing a Brief Solution Focused Therapy approach, this model can assist in accomplishing therapy goals in a short time frame. Additionally, I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have extensive experience in assessing and working with children who have experienced trauma. My graduate and doctoral coursework has also trained me in multiple other therapeutic models.

I believe big change happens as a result of taking small steps, and by making small needed changes. This allows a person to become "unstuck" from old beliefs, patterns, behaviors, and ways if thinking which are harmful to self and others. I use a primarily solution-focused approach and a systemic lens while working with my clients. I believe life is constantly moving and changing and that it is important, on a journey towards growth and healing, that a person feel supported and equipped to handle life's challenges. Whatever the problem, desire, or goal, I will work to help move you forward in a positive and meaningful direction.

Life can change in a flash. Transitions are not always expected. Job loss, chronic illness, death of a loved one, a pandemic - not to mention those we do plan, such as moving, empty nest, retirement, and others. We often try to avoid transitions because change can be hard. Even a positive change can cause a feeling loss, anxiety, easily overwhelming, and often leads to depression. The good news is those suffering from an emotional instability, a trauma & loss, or other mental health illnesses can learn new tools and skills to maneuver their way to a new calm and peace.

My ideal client is someone who is looking to grow, develop his or her identity, and learn to set and maintain healthy boundaries. I enjoy working with people who are uncomfortable with the idea of therapy or have had negative experiences with it in the past as my style is very relaxed and patient. I enjoy using humor and feel that everyone can benefit from having someone truly listen, not judge, and help without telling you what you "should" do. I love helping people find balance and explore meaning and purpose in life. There is no one size fits all approach, we will form a plan that works for and with you.
