Therapy is a journey. I applaud you for taking this step toward enhanced well-being in your life. As is true of any journey, having a roadmap provides clarity, direction and a destination, and we'll develop this roadmap together. I provide a non-judgmental, confidential and safe environment in which you and I will work as partners to identify and overcome obstacles and barriers in your life. My approach is eclectic, but I utilize cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing (MI) and solution-focused therapies to help you reach your goals. I have been a licensed clinical social worker for 19 years, and I have helped many people over that time.

I am a considerate, direct and an active provider who is committed in assisting my clients to achieve their goals. While many people struggling with mental illness have difficulty opening up in treatment, I work to create an open and collaborative relationship to help understand the obstacles and dynamics being faced. I also work with the client to help build their strengths, attributes and qualities to conquer these challenges to accomplish their goals. I have been working in mental health since 2008, initially as a mental health case manager then later as a substance abuse counselor before graduating from University of Phoenix and becoming a therapist in 2014. I primarily worked in an outpatient community mental health clinic with individuals diagnosed with severe mental illness and substance abuse along with on-call crisis triage from 2008-20 until moving to a federal detention facility for 8 months working with detainees with moderate to severe mental illness. Since 2018, I have been working on various telehealth platforms including Talkspace, Ginger, Modern Health, Rula (Path) Mental Health, Octave and my own group practice Westwind Counseling.
