17 years of experience

Do you find yourself stuck and not knowing where to start to achieve the best version of your authentic self? Are you in a transition in life and looking to find direction? Have you felt broken and are now ready to begin the process of healing? I am ready to embark on this journey with you. I have been practicing in the area of counseling and coaching for more than 15 years. I have experience with all populations from ages 3-80. My experience includes substance abuse, court-mandated counseling, family and relationship counseling, parenting, coaching, trauma and life transitions. Therapy with me is a personal journey with the client. My theoretical orientation is very person-centered and designed to surround the client's needs. I use an innovative approach that combines orientations such as CBT, Motivational interviewing, and client-centered therapy to create the best outcomes for the client.

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

In our first session you can expect to have a comfortable engaging meet and greet which will set the tone for our therapeutic relationship. In the first session there is no pressure at all. We will get to know each other on a personal and therapeutic level. I strongly focus on building rapport from the very first encounter. The first session should show you immediately that therapy is not intimidating at all, relationship and rapport are important, and you are the focus.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My treatment is very person-centered. I use a combination of CBT, motivational interviewing and solution focus therapy to achieve optimal outcomes.

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

My strength is to help clients identify their strengths. My ability to assist people in being unstuck using their power is my strength.
