21 years of experience

I am a social worker with over 20 years of experience working with clients from infants (support to parents) to geriatrics. I believe that our thoughts are powerful to change our behavior. We often have been taught to "just change our behavior" and then we get down on ourselves when we can't. But if we work on changing our thoughts then we have much more success in changing our behavior. This can be very helpful for individuals with anxiety, depression, grief, personality challenges, trauma, couples, etc.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

The first session is a time of assessment, asking a lot of the basic questions to get an idea of the client's background and a sense of what may be going on that brought them to my computer screen. Also, try to do some goal setting as to what the client hopes to get out of counseling services.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

Clients appreciate my down to Earth style and use of analogies to help make therapy applicable to their life. I love making sure that at the end of every session there is at least one take away tool, task, etc that the client will be working on for the next week. My goal of therapy is that clients get tools for their toolbox of life that they can take and use not only during therapy, but from now on.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

This is thinking about your thinking. So, we look at how your thinking leads to your emotions and behaviors instead of the situation. If we can change the thinking then we change the emotion and behavior. We often don't have control over the situation, but do have control over our thinking.

Faith based therapy

If a persons faith is important to them, then it is central to their improvement. Therefore, it is central to their thought process and can be very beneficial to their mental well-being. We can draw upon that for strength. This is only used for those individuals who choose to include this as part of their treatment.

Family Therapy

For teenagers, this is important because adolescents don't exist alone. A combination of individual and family therapy is important to strengthen communication, set boundaries and expectations, and ensure cohesive communication.


Skill building is much of what I do throughout therapy to build tools that clients can use not only during therapy, but once they are done in therapy. The goal of therapy for me is that my clients won't need me anymore because they will get enough tools to be able to move forward.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing is about helping to see problems where you didn't see them before and working towards wanting to work on them. Sometimes we know we aren't happy, but don't see the problem it's self. We need someone to help us identify the problem and be willing to work on it. As a therapist it is my job to help you see how it might be a problem, then get you to identify that it would be more of a problem to not work on it, so that you invest on working on it. Then help you develop a plan and work the plan.
