About

Have you acknowledged that you have a problem and are now seeking help? When you talk to family or friends, do you feel like you are not being heard? I believe that the first step in the healing process for any issue is to be "heard" and have someone to listen to you. I provide a safe place for individuals, families, parents, and couples to speak and begin the healing process. My goal is to provide a warm, nurturing, accepting environment that meets the client where they are at.
I am an LCSW with 20 years of counseling experience. I enjoy working with clients of all ages who need help navigating this obstacle course we call life when it presents with such problems as depression, anxiety, anger, behavior problems, grief, stress, relational conflicts, and traumatic events.
I offer unconventional office hours, evening and weekends, to better accommodate busy lifestyles. I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Solution-Focused; Strength Based, and Motivational Interviewing to create a special individualize plan to meet the clients' needs.
