I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 10 years of clinical counseling experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and esteem and confidence challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I am a very positive person who believes people CAN change and find the purpose in their lives.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and all it takes is that first step. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
