I’m a licensed and board certified psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of addiction and trauma. Much of my work has included working with adolescents, adults and families who are challenged by anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues. In addition, I have experience working with the LGTBQ community, conflict resolution, and eating disorders. Believing you are the expert in your life my hope is to act as a beacon of light on a path that sometimes goes dark. As a Credentialed Alcohol Substance Abuse Counselor(CASAC), I can help you and/or your loved ones work towards recovery and healing.

I’ve worked for 2 decades with clients at various levels of care including residential, partial hospital, intensive outpatient and school settings providing individual, family, and group therapy. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I practice from a person-centered perspective along with making use of CBT, DBT, and Motivational Interviewing.
My success in treating clients stems from my approach which is straight forward and solution-focused to help clients move forward rather than staying stuck in their challenge areas. To my future clients: In Harry Potter, Prisoner of Azkaban, Dumbledore says ‘Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. ‘”
