Walking your journey from youth to young at heart

I have been working as a mental health counselor since 2004. I work with people of all ages, lifestyles, and backgrounds using a variety of modalities tailored to meet my clients where they are while working to achieve their ideal selves. In a comfortable, nonjudgmental and safe environment, we will explore what has driven you to seek counseling services. I have worked with clients as young as 3 and as old as 99 and with individuals, couples, and families. My clients have come from all walks of life and all desire to reach different goals. They have been through a variety of situations experiencing everything from general stress, life frustrations, anxiety and depression as well as those with a history of trauma, PTSD, personality disorders, self-harm and suicidal ideation. I also work with attachment development, foster and adoptive families, anger management, emotionally stunted individuals, ADHD and more. Seeking counseling can be a scary and nerve-wracking endeavor but, I hope to be able to ease those fears and help you move into a more content and calm life. I became a counselor after having many less than satisfactory counseling experiences. We do not have sufficient mental health counselors in our community and my goal is to provide affordable, caring therapy that can help you move forward in your life.
