10 years of experience

I have amassed over 20 years of experience in counseling, specializing in supporting adults and adolescents dealing with substance use disorder, domestic violence and sexual assault, and mental health challenges before branching off into private practice.  My passion is empowering individuals, couples and families to see their strengths as resources in life's challenges and to help shift patterns to more satisfying outcomes.   

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 create a tailored plan for us to work through in follow-up sessions.

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

Living life involves facing difficult times, but you never have to face them alone. We all need a supportive ear from time to time. Together, we can work on creating a better tomorrow by using the skills and techniques learned through therapy. Managing our emotions is a skill that can be learned, just like reading or doing math. It all starts with taking the first step. Sometimes, the smallest steps in the right direction turn out to be the biggest steps of our lives.

My treatment methods

Person-centered (Rogerian)

Person-Centered Therapy is a compassionate and supportive approach to talk therapy. It emphasizes the individual, rather than the issue at hand. The main objective is to empower the client to guide the sessions and cultivate increased self-reliance and self-assurance. By reflecting on what is said, asking thought-provoking questions, and providing non-judgmental support, the therapist helps the client navigate their challenges, gain insight into their values, and make sense of their thoughts and emotions.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy integrates mindfulness practices like meditation, focused breathing, and present moment awareness with cognitive therapy. Learning these mindfulness skills can be incredibly valuable in addressing challenges such as preventing substance use relapse, managing anxiety, overcoming depression, and coping with emotional distress. While skills can be valuable for everyone, the practice of mindfulness is a personal journey. Different techniques may work for some and not for others. In therapy session, the goal is to benefit you.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based practice that recognizes that psychological challenges often stem from unhelpful ways of thinking about a problem or situation. These thought patterns are learned behaviors that can be unlearned, offering hope for relieving distressing symptoms and finding relief. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy can be a valuable tool for addressing a range of challenges, including depression, anxiety, substance use disorders, relationship problems, eating disorders, and more.
