Seeking effective therapeutic services can be an overwhelming task, often coming at a time when a person is already feeling overwhelmed in his or her life. Taking care of your emotional and mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health. Therapeutic counseling can help you define your direction and purpose, and enhance all areas of your life and relationships.  

I work using an eclectic and collaborative approach to meet the needs of each individual client. I enjoy working with adults, children, couples, and families, and have a wide range of clients with diverse cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations. I continue to grow and learn from the strengths and insights of my clients. I will value your perspective and work collaboratively with you while providing support and guidance in achieving your goals. Together we can create a therapeutic relationship that offers self-awareness, acceptance, insight, resources, and the integration of past and present experiences. Such integration  can provide you with a sense of mastery and confidence that will help you regulate your emotional and cognitive responses in your everyday life.

I appreciate the uniqueness of each client and work organically with every situation. My work is client-centered and strength-based. I will meet you where you are and get you where you want to be. We will utilize your wisdom and insight to discover resources and tools that will create and develop new possibilities in your life.
