My focus as your therapist is to listen deeply, and remind you of your strengths and inner wisdom. I can assist you with creating strategies, skill building to move through the challenges you are experiencing, to improve relationships, improve communication skills, challenge negative thinking patterns. I provide a safe place to talk about what is troubling you.
I use a variety of therapeutic methods that include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, assessment of work and life balance, and mindfulness techniques. I am certified in Heart Math for stress management, and Trauma Sensitive Heart Math, helping clients reduce stress symptoms to regain their sense of control and self-mastery.
My counseling background started with addiction and recovery counseling in 2007, and in 2017 added mental health therapy. My work experience in the Mental Health Field includes a wide variety of organizations and specific mental health needs. I welcome the opportunity to be of service to you.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) frequently to explore what you would like to accomplish in therapy. With CBT, we can identify thoughts that may not be serving you, and Motivational Interviewing can help assess areas you would like to put time and focus on to bring about healthy changes.
