I am an addiction recovery counselor who specializes in trauma and abuse, offering psychoeducation, coping, and grounding skills for managing the accompanying issues of anxiety, depression, and anger.

While my specialty is chemical dependency and related issues, I focus on each client as a unique individual, with unidentified strengths and positive qualities. My approach is client-informed and solution-focused, using cognitive behavioral, narrative, and solution-focused therapies, as well as teaching mindfulness techniques and healthy life skills. I offer both short- and long-term therapy, and will help you find your inner happiness and become empowered to advocate successfully for yourself. I am currently meeting in person only with clients who are fully vaccinated and boosted, and by video telehealth calls with other clients.
