Accepting new clients, daytime appointments available. My goal as a therapist is to help support you during times when life is difficult and help you develop healthy coping tools. Whether you are dealing with anxiety or panic, stress, depression, grief and loss, relationship issues, eating concerns, or a traumatic event, we will work together to understand ourselves better, and work towards acceptance of our emotions to nurture our inner self, heal and grow.
My goal as a therapist is to guide you to a place where life feels more manageable. Healing from difficult experiences or coping with overwhelming emotions can seem like an insurmountable task. The journey to health can be made much smoother by talking to someone who will actively listen and provide you with feedback. You and I can collaborate to find the best pathways to manage or alleviate your symptoms. You don’t have to go through it alone!
Regardless of circumstances, I believe every person has the capacity and resilience within themselves to find the path they want to live. By providing education on possible approaches to help, and allowing you to decide what fits your needs, best demonstrates my understanding that you have the ability within to heal. Working together to understand the role emotions play, we can then understand the messages your emotions offer, increasing awareness of the changes needed in order to find your desired path.

Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, NCC, LPC, CAADC, ICAADC
I work with individuals, family, and couples ranging from children, adolescents, and adults ranging from ages 14 to 80. I address issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, , grief, drug and alcohol addiction, marital and relationship issues, positive communication, positive parenting, behavior modification, goal and career setting, self esteem, and relationship enhancement. My view of counseling is a helping process. Helping you make choices about what you want to be, have, do, and give to others. This involves a process of coming to an awareness of your needs and wants in a confidential, safe and accepting environment..
Searching for a counselor is a very intimate and vulnerable activity. Seeking help with relationship? Seeking help with managing anxiety? Seeking help with a history of trauma? Have you tried counseling before and it has not gone well? Have you thought about counseling before and never taken that step to make and attend an appointment? Attend counseling to help your healing journey move forward with someone who is not emotionally attached to any of the decisions you need to make. Journeys are a series of steps. I hope you find the courage to move forward in your journey. Soon adding Animal Assisted Therapy.

I would like to teach my clients to be their own therapists and/or to re-parent their parts to function in this world at their highest ability. I completely and thoroughly appreciate and am grateful for every moment even the not so good ones (usually the lesson we need to learn). I want to help my clients learn happiness comes from within, happiness is their responsibility and we ALL deserve to be happy and to feel loved and accepted.
