About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and have been a mental health provider since 2004. I have worked with clients with chronic diagnosis such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder, but my passion is to work with those attempting to manage trauma symptoms, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life stressors, relationships, and those who are trying to identify the root causes of pain, trauma, stress, and overall unhappiness.

My approach to therapy is that there is No One Way to do anything. Possibilities and solutions are infinite and individualized. Understanding how our thoughts influence our lives is a key part to my approach to therapy, but although a cognitive behavioral approach may be appropriate for one person, a dialectical approach may be more appropriate for another. We will explore together what works best for you, and use those strategies to bring forth restoration of the mind, body, spirit, and overall emotional well-being.

Our thoughts heavily influence our waking life and choices. During our first session we will explore why you have decided to seek counseling and begin to take a look at your individual perception of the world around you. As we progress we will explore the root causes of affliction and strategies for coping and overcoming them.

Trauma work is my passion! I have spent the last 10 years providing therapy to adults and youth detained in jail and juvenile detention. In these settings I provided diagnosis and treatment of mental health, addictions, and behavioral disorders. What I discovered in my work in these facilities is that the correctional staff (officers, mental health professionals, nurses, etc.) are suffering from symptoms of trauma at alarming rates due to the nature of the work and hazards in the environment. They are not getting the help they deserve as first responders. It is my hope that these individuals are able to have access to therapy and counseling services from therapists like myself who have first hand knowledge about their exposure to trauma.
