I am an LPC-A with experience in addiction counseling and coping with anxiety, depression, and trauma.

I have gained experience in individual and group counseling for adolescents and adults. Areas in counseling in which I have focused my experiences are addiction and various types of trauma including domestic violence, family violence, and sexual abuse. I have also received training for facilitating SMART Recovery groups.

​​My primary counseling theory is Person-Centered, which helps people achieve their personal growth and changes through self-understanding and empowerment. When counseling addictive behaviors I utilize techniques found in Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and SMART Recovery to provide tools for an individual to succeed in their journey to recovery. When provided tools and resources, people have the chance to find what works best for their lifestyle and combine them to fit their individual needs and facilitate the change they want to see in their lives.
