About

Unfortunately many people have had negative experiences with counseling, making them hesitant to seek help again. I am especially skilled at working with those who are uncomfortable with the idea of therapy. A client once told me "You should be a therapist for people who do not like therapy". I try to understand people on an individual level & adapt my skills to meet their needs. My goal is to provide a safe, comfortable, & nonjudgmental atmosphere. Therapy should not be simply "learning coping skills", to deal with negative feelings, it should involve working through the root of the problem to facilitate long-lasting change.
I work with Addictions, ADHD, Anger, Anxiety, Bipolar, Communication, Depression, Grief, Hoarding, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Parenting Issues, Relational Issues, Breakups, Divorce, Dating, Self-Esteem, Self-Injurious Behavior, Work conflicts, etc. No issue is too big or too small for us to work through. ASK ABOUT ART THERAPY!
I am competent in working with individuals, couples, families, children, and adults. I believe in a holistic view of counseling, meaning that mind, body, and spirit all play into our well-being. My goal is to help you to help yourself feel better. YOU are the expert on yourself. NOW OFFERING MENTAL HEALTH & LIFE COACHING
