I am a licensed mental health counselor with 23 yrs of experience in the industry, 17 of those years as a licensed clinician. I have worked in various settings and am a helper at heart. I treat individuals with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, adjustment difficulty and relationship challenges. I serve individuals, couples, small groups for targeted training. Modalities of treatment are eclectic and diverse: Trained in CBT, DBT, Mindfulness and other evidenced base practices. All are welcome.

I meet people where they are in their pain and discomfort and also would like to note that I see pain and discomfort as an opportunity for growth. I am very eclectic as it pertains to my approach and will work with you to create a treatment plan that is individualized for your specific situation. The therapeutic alliance is fragile, it takes time to collect history, build rapport and work in tandem towards lasting change. Your journey with me will begin with a full psycho-social evaluation, we will discuss current circumstances, family history, social history, what's working for you and not working. We will also explore relationships, coping strategies, changes you'd like to make and prospective plan to get you there. Subsequent sessions tend to be more relaxed and less structured. I center these sessions around your topics of desire and purpose, I hold your agenda and your identified goals in mind for you throughout treatment. Holding your agenda allows me to assist you with accountability. In most sessions you will learn tangible skills, obtain psychoeducation, or have tasked assigned that assist you in reaching your goals. I use assessments pre, during and at the time of discharge to assist you in measuring your progress over time. Most of my clients see change within the first 90 days of treatment and discharge successfully within 4-6 months on average. If you are seeking a safe space to work out your challenges, change them into opportunity one issue at a time please contact me for your initial intake session.
