I am a licensed counselor with 12 years of experience in mental health, specifically family issues, mood disorders, and addiction. I specialize in self-esteem and communication because I believe we all desire learning to value ourselves and connect with others. I work under the belief that the first step, as we work together, is helping you expand your awareness and discover more about yourself. The focus in sessions is generally less about one's past and more about identifying thoughts and behaviors that are negatively affecting your day to day life. My philosophy is that behavior is learned and can be unlearned and I am here to assist you in identifying meaning and purpose in your life, finding alternative choices, making a plan to act on those choices, and supporting you through practicing such. I am looking forward to meeting you!
