"My clinical training and professional background is in community counseling, with a focus on addictions, mental health disorders, and grief and trauma. I work with children (age 5 and up), adolescents, and adults. My therapeutic presence is naturally open, accepting, and warm. I am very goal-oriented with my clients, as I believe in making the therapeutic process as productive, solution-focused, and meaningful as possible. I do work with clients to gain insight into how experiences from the past inform their present, but I do this in a way that focuses on working toward solving problems in the here-and-now."
