About

I am a committed and highly dedicated Mental Health Therapist with extensive experience in counseling people from diverse backgrounds. I possess an outgoing personality with great rapport-building skills. I love working with children, teens, families and couples. I believe everyone should have a safe place to cultivate healing as one works through life's difficulties. I have worked in many different levels of care. Many of my clients are seeking help with problems such as depression, anxiety, abuse, addiction, grief and loss, stage of life changes, personality disorders, mood disorders, low self-esteem, family conflict and trauma.
My counseling style is genuine, personalized and client centered. I believe all people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, without judgement or labeling. My approach is a blend of mindfulness, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, solution-focused and integrative therapy.
In life, you're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day. I would love to assist you on working on being an even better version of yourself. You're here so you're already moving in the right direction.
