LCPC, NCC, CWDF
I am passionate about and committed to working with clients. I feel honored to be a part of a client’s journey. My approach is engaging and straightforward, welcoming and affirming, and respectful and compassionate.
I enjoy working with adults and elders, individuals, couples, and groups. I maintain a general counseling practice covering a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship issues (work, social, family, and romantic), life transitions (expected and unexpected), women’s issues, and couples counseling.
I have additional training and experience in the specialty areas of LGBTQ+, gifted adults and parenting gifted children, geriatric mental health, trauma recovery, and dual diagnosis (co-occurring mental health and substance abuse). I am a Certified EMDR therapist and an EMDR Consultant-in-Training.
I strive for excellence in my work and instill this value in every aspect of my care. Providing ethical, respectful, and caring counseling, I work to provide an environment where clients feel understood and safe so they can address whatever issue brought them to counseling. I tailor care to meet individual needs and situations and engages with each client in an authentic manner.
