Are you feeling like life is just too much right now? Are you looking for a safe, non-judgmental space to share? I believe in meeting people where they are at and helping them to take small steps or huge leaps in the directions they’d like to go!

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified AODA Counselor. I have have worked with individuals with a variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, OCD, addictions, poor self-esteem, chronic medical conditions, financial difficulties, and relationship issues. I love helping people, and I feel it is a gift to journey through triumphs and challenges with individuals I counsel.

I generally use humanistic, client-centered, strengths-based, motivational interviewing, and cognitive-behavioral therapy modalities. However, my therapeutic approach is based on the individual, and I welcome feedback so I can best understand and address each person’s needs.

If you are reading this, you’ve already shown great courage by reaching out. I am ready to keep taking next steps with you and will provide plenty of encouragement along the way!
Please contact me via phone or email for a free consultation. I very much look forward to meeting and working with you soon!
