I am a mental health professional with over twenty-five years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in various settings. In my current position as Mental Health Counselor, I provide viable counseling and necessary services to my clients. My counseling techniques are advanced, well-defined and effective at meeting the needs of my clients. Moreover, my counseling skills have proven to be viable, and as a result, clients have demonstrated great progress. I am also organized with an attention to detail. My interpersonal skills enable me to establish and maintain a good rapport with my clients. I enjoy helping them to reach goals and learn new behaviors. I am an approachable, compassionate and a competent counselor. Demonstrating adeptness in my area of expertise, I also help high performers manage anxiety and avoid burnout. Together, we can identify what's not working and get you back to balance. We'll use a whole self approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body and spirit. I also integrate mindfulness, and art to help you develop a stronger relationship with yourself. Whether you're dealing with overwhelm, relationship issues or cycles of anxiety and depression, I can assist you with my highly competent skills. Seeking therapy can feel scary, but you are making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I will meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the issues and habits holding you back. Let's work together!

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

In our first session together we'll start with brief introductions, then dive into the specific challenges you're facing. This will help me to create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.

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

I have a tremendous amount of experience working with clients who have struggled with a variety of issues. I am a competent therapist who possesses a great deal of passion about what I do and what is of the utmost importance to me is the well being of my clients.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

My focus is CBT where helping to improve one's automatic thoughts is vital. This approach has been very effective helping individuals to think more positively where this has a tremendous impact on day to day functioning where it be at home, at work, or in dealing with others.
