Maintaining healthy relationships and boundaries can often be complicated.

Life can be difficult and recent events have made it much harder. As the Covid-19 crisis begins to end and we return to "normal" life there are still hurdles for us to navigate. Having worked as a crisis counselor at FEMA disaster centers, I helped many people work through emotional difficulties in the aftermath of a crisis. During the pandemic I offer telehealth sessions. Outside of the residual COVID-19 issues, you might just need a caring person to listen and help you navigate the hills and find refuge in the valleys of everyday life. I welcome the opportunity to help you obtain your goals.

I believe knowledge of our nervous systems with its attachment and stress response functions is important. The relationship we form in therapy can help you to move toward relief, understanding and the change you are hoping for. Knowledge of the nervous system also informs how we will specifically work to heal difficult or even traumatic experiences. We will build awareness, gain skills and ultimately heal mind and body. We will work on past traumas and difficulties, leaning on strengths and natural resilience, creating personalized solutions to develop gifts, find meaning and live according to your values.

I have worked in the field of addictions for over 20 years. People suffering from addictions and their families may have other underlying mental health issues such as trauma, depression and anxiety. Throughout my career, I have worked tirelessly with adults, adolescents, and as well as their families to address these issues and find a path to healing. My philosophy is simple: to treat the person in the surrounding environment, to see a person in the context of family, school, job, and community (and to evaluate the impact of these relationships), and to focus on the person's strengths as well as embrace their difficulties.

For many people starting counseling can be a scary and intimidating task. My hope is to help ease into finding ways to explore and enhance your own abilities and experiences as well as uncover the obstacles or fears that can hold us back from uncovering our strengths and inner resources to managing life stressors and challenges. During our time together we will work to explore the strengths that help you thrive in your day-to-day experience. I use a holistic psychosomatic approach and hope to target areas to support and incorporate new strategies to improve overall health.

I am a fierce advocate for mental health and a collaborative counselor. I am a firm believer that clients are the experts of their own lived experiences and, therefore, are already armed with the tools they need to start their healing journey - it just might take some empowering and empathic listening to help get there. Together, my clients and I work on building rapport, which I believe is the most important part of counseling. I enjoy uplifting and supporting clients, while also challenging their ways of thinking, making her a non-judgmental and compassionate, but realistic, sounding board.

Honestly, you've probably looked through many provider profiles by now and are wondering who to pick. It can be a tough decision and so I offer a 30 minute screening phone call to help decide if we would be a good fit for each other. I'll answer any questions that you may have and will refer you to another provider if I believe that they will be better suited to meet your mental health needs. I am person-centered and will be happy to serve you along this journey, making sure that your wants and needs are heard and making sure that you are the priority in your own treatment.

Over the course of my career I have had the advantage of working with very diverse populations; high school students , the military , and compulsive gamblers . I have used many techniques to help my clients but the most important "tools" are the ones that empower individuals and that they will use regularly . My approach is eclectic based on my experience and what is practical.All clients have a resilency that is often lost in the course of everyday life and especially in situations that erode their strengths . Understanding how to uncover and recover their strengths in a valuable tool.

Footprints was started by a therapist who realized that often times the services provided to low socio-economic communities is lacking quality care. We noticed these communities where confronted with long wait times, disrespectful admins, and subpar treatment. The one and only purpose was to exploit the community for profit without providing the level of care deserved. Footprints began from the inspiration to provide quality mental health care to the poorest of communities and treating the clients of this community the same way a rich patient would be treated in a clinic treating affluent clients.

Life is a series of challenges. Society reinforces quick fixes to be happy. I am realistic and believe that living the kind of life you desire is not about avoiding distress and challenges. It is about learning skills and having the right tools to function while feeling distress and facing those challenges. True growth occurs in the face of discomfort, so therapy is not always easy. I provide a safe space while you go through those times of discomfort. It is the willingness to tolerate that discomfort and when real transformation and empowerment occurs.
