I am a Licenced Professional Counselor (LPC) dedicated to helping adults cope with anxiety, depression, trauma and substance abuse.

I believe all people are individuals, therefore no one style of therapy fits all. I utilize an integrative, holistic (mind-body-spirit) approach and person-centered therapy style to best meet your needs and goals. I incorporate elements from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT). We will work together to change any negative and irrational thought patterns, beliefs, and behaviors that are keeping you from making changes in life. I will help you to focus on real-life solutions to create positive changes. You will learn to utilize your strengths and increase your sense of self-assurance; knowing you have the skills to handle life’s ups and downs (Strength Based Therapy).
