Hi! In my work over the years, I have had the pleasure to see my clients succeed at life! I am compassionate, non-judgmental, and we will meet wherever you are and take you wherever you want to go. I look forward to working with you! Specializations Addiction and/or Substance Use Concerns, Anger Management, Anxiety, Couples Counseling, Depression, Family Therapy, Grief, Health Psychology, Parenting Issues, Relationship Issues, Sleep Health, Women's Health. In our sessions, you can see into my home, and it is as if you are right there with me. No filters, no staring at a wall behind me. You will be inside of my home office as if it were in person. At our sessions I take notes that I give to you at the end of our sessions, so you have have something tangible to take with you, as well as links to resources such as podcasts, books, take home exercises (never mandatory though!) to help you progress in between sessions to make our time together more valuable. I used to be in direct service many years ago and then moved into training EAP providers and offering trainings for Mental Health providers to maintain their licenses, but during the, "Great Hiatus," I saw that people needed help. So I came back to be in the trenches. You are in good hands! I am also a student of positive psychology, but I have the ability to empathize deeply and really be right there with you. Almost all of my clients have experienced breakthroughs and by the end of our time together are enjoying their lives again and feeling competent to problem solve and develop coping tools, and resiliency.

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

We will talk about the process, I will tell you a little about myself and my approach, and then I will listen to what it is that you are wanting out of counseling. From our first session, we begin to develop a plan to help you relieve some of the pressures in your life so that you can gain the headspace you need to start working through what brought you to me in the first place. We will be connecting on a very real level and I will earn your trust and respect.

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

Being able to connect, build a good working relationship with you, providing you with immediately actionable tools. I don't just sit by and listen. I get involved because of how passionate I am for everyone to be well. Mental Health is a human right!

My treatment methods

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

To help you identify what thoughts, feelings and subsequent behaviors that you are fused with, that are not helping you meet your goals and to help you stop repeating thought patterns and behaviors that can cause you more problems in the long run.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Learning to recognize one's distortions in thinking that are creating problems, and then to reevaluate them in light of reality

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

Using meditation, relaxation and awareness exercises to help focus on the present moment, aiming over time to experience day to day situations and stressors in nonjudgmental and non-reactionary ways.
