You may be looking for help to decrease drinking or not playing as many video games. Perhaps you and your partner have hit a rough patch and need some clarity and understanding. Maybe you realize you are carrying hurts from your past that keep showing up in your present relationships. Someone may be saying, "you should see a counselor." If any of this sounds familiar, I look forward to meeting you! I want you to feel less anxiety and more peace and to feel empowered by proactivity rather than punished by reactivity. Whether or not you're ready for counseling, I welcome your call or email.

I work with adults and teens going through difficult times, who may be experiencing anxiety, depression, or the effects of past trauma. Many of my clients feel disconnected - from themselves, their family and friends, and from the parts of life that make it meaningful and joyful. When we restore these connections, we find that improvements in other areas are soon to follow.

*Immediate evening/weekend openings available* I work with individuals dealing with life transitions, parenting and relationship concerns, anxiety disorders, depression, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, thought disorders, trauma, and existential questions. When we spend our energy avoiding painful thoughts, feelings and emotions, we’re often left feeling disconnected, with little to give to the things that enrich and fulfill us. Counseling can help you discover the courage and skills to move through the things that keep you stuck. I am passionate about walking alongside clients as they begin to face whatever is holding them back.

I began my career providing counseling services in a substance abuse treatment center and have continued to specialize in these issues. Substance abuse and addiction are confusing to those that suffer from this disease and their families. I have learned over many years that no one is immune to mental health stress, trauma, addiction, OR from recovery and wellness. Expert couples counseling requires expert training. The Gottman Method is taught in three levels and I completed all three in 2017. My intensive couples approach is successful in improving communication and usually provides results in a much shorter time frame.
