Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, MA, LPCC-S, LICDCCS
I specialize in working with women and men with trauma and/or chemical dependency. Trauma may include single incident trauma, complex trauma, or attachment concerns. I have seven years of experience working as a counselor in the community mental health and addiction field. I also have experience and enjoy working with OCD, depression, anxiety, co-dependency, grief/loss, self-esteem concerns, spiritual concerns and borderline personality disorder. I work with adults. I have experience with court ordered clients.
I help patients understand the relationship between food and their overall health, and how many common medical and mental health conditions are due to poor dieting. Our practice also supports patients who simply eat too much, and want to control their eating and achieve weight loss and improved metabolic health. Poor dieting can cause many other medical conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke, as well as depression, anxiety, stress, brain fog and more. These conditions can be difficult on mental health, so learning about proper eating habits can help the patient as a whole.

Thank you for your interest in our services! Whatever your reasons for seeking counseling might be, I want to assure you that you are not alone. If you’re anything like I am, at times there are challenges in life that can feel overwhelming. It can be easy to get "stuck" in some of these problems that we face, creating feelings of despair, frustration, anxiety or anger. It is at these times that having the help of an experienced guide can make a big difference.
I am currently unable to accept new clients but I am hoping to be able to do so again in a few weeks. Clients with more immediate needs are welcome to contact my office to see if another provider is available in the interim. Clients who have experienced trauma often don’t feel heard and find the world extremely overwhelming. It can often feel like life will never get better but healing is possible. Our life experiences don’t have to define us and we don’t have to remain stuck in symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety or use substances to cover up the pain from all of these issues. Again, healing is possible.
I provide individual therapeutic services to teens (15-17), adults (18+) and couples via telehealth services. My experience includes working with depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, adjustment issues, self-esteem, boundary-setting, grief, self-care and many other facets of mental health. I enjoy working with diverse populations, including but not limited to: LGBTQ+, POC, college students, caretakers and aging adults. Flexible scheduling & scaling price options available. Good Faith Estimate available upon request. Please email me for more information or to set up a free 15 minute consultation.
Sometimes we can feel stress and lost with relationships, our families, and ourselves. We all need help. Someone to listen to up. You might wish you could improve your sex life in your romantic relationships, or change your family and relationships interactions. Maybe you want to live a calm and peaceful life and overcome past traumas that don't let you move on. Replaying your history over and over, wishing things were different. It might be the way you think and treat yourself that brought you here. Maybe you want to discover more about yourself and never knew how.
Tired of feeling "stuck" and helpless? It's time to take back your life! This is not how you wanted it to be...constantly overwhelmed, anxious/on edge, feeling lost and discouraged. From conflict in relationships to your own basic sanity.… it's a never ending cycle of chaos in your head that won't stop. Everything seems to trigger you from something painful in the past. Fear and worry make it hard to breathe, or hopelessness overcomes you. It seems like things will never get better and it's too much to bear. If pain from the past is affecting your happiness and you're ready to make a change, take action now and call or email me!

Hello! I truly believe everyone goes through a period of time when they can benefit from working with a counselor who can look at things objectively and offer suggestions, feedback, and direction to create the changes that are desired. I offer counseling services in a compassionate, nurturing environment to preteens, teens, and adults and I focus on what is most important to the client. I have been providing counseling services to teenagers, adults, couples, and families since 1997 with the hopes of helping them live healthy, happy lives and I look forward to beginning our relationship to create the life you are hoping for.
My purpose is to assist children, adolescent, and young adults shift their thinking beyond external definitions and look inside to define themselves. Skewed definitions of self lead to difficulty regulating emotions, difficulties in school, or other emotional disorders such as depression and anxiety which can lead to poor coping skills. Parents allow me to journey with you and your child to successfully navigate the next steps toward a purposeful life.
