About

I am a licensed mental health counselor with over 16 years experience working with individuals on a variety of needs. I have worked at an outpatient mental health clinic, in a therapeutic preschool, and, most recently, ran and directed a college counseling center. My past experiences include working with adults, families, students of all ages, and children as young as 3. I am currently working with adults and children as young as 12 but will consider younger children on a case by case basis.
I utilize a variety of treatment modalities in my approach to counseling. My background includes additional training and a certificate in trauma counseling but I work with individuals on a variety of topics and goal areas. Some of these include: anxiety, stress, life adjustments and transitions, relationship challenges, and many others.
It is not uncommon to feel nervous or ambivalent about seeking support for yourself. I have had numerous clients say they were nervous when we first met or afraid to take this step for themselves. But I have also had clients tell me how they felt comfortable working with me, that I am approachable, and relatable. I hope you will agree! Give me a call! :)
