I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor with over 10 years of experience specializing in the treatment of individuals who have experienced trauma. My practice is dedicated to helping clients navigate the complex journey of healing from traumatic events, providing them with the tools and support needed to reclaim their lives and well-being. Trauma can have a profound impact on an individual's mental, emotional, and physical health. It's not uncommon for those who have experienced trauma to also struggle with substance abuse, depression, and anxiety. These conditions are often interconnected, creating a cycle that can be challenging to break without professional support. I am committed to providing a holistic approach to counseling that respects and integrates each client's unique needs, values, and beliefs. Understanding that spirituality and faith can play a significant role in one's mental and emotional well-being, I offer the option to incorporate God and/or spirituality into our sessions. Whether you seek to explore these aspects more deeply or prefer a secular approach, I am here to support you in a manner that aligns with your personal beliefs and preferences.

Hi there! Taking the step into, or back into, therapy is an important one. My goal is to support you in the effort by being warm and compassionate as a clinician to help you feel as secure as possible in the process. If you would like a partner to help sift through experiences in your life to draw out insights that allow you to feel more empowered in your life to take control and make decisions that are more authentic to you, I am here. I believe many of us turn to therapy when we need support in managing difficult aspects and realities in our life, and finding ways to be more at peace with those aspects so that we can have more control of our individual lives is an overall aim of our work together.

I have been working with adults for approximately 15 years. On the first visit, my job is to listen to your description of what is going on in your life. What are the stressors, what are the protective factors? Also, what are your strengths and challenges? We then collaborate on what it is that you want to change. We look at behavior/thinking,feeling patterns that may get in the way of a better quality of life. I come from a place of I'm okay and you're okay, meaning that we both have value and mutual respect.

Each day, upon waking, I consider myself to be blessed for the opportunity to practice Clinical Social Work for a living. I have felt this way for the last seventeen years, and am a practitioner of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness-Based Therapy and hold to the belief that I can best serve my clients when I assist them in the pursuit of resolving today’s problems, issues, and concerns. Of course, I can use psychoanalysis to help my clients understand their past, the subject of “Why I am what I am”. Yet, I find it so much more exciting to explore with my clients, the “How do I improve myself” question. The way I try to live my life is to strive towards living in the "the solution" and the choice to live daily in that quest. To that point, it is fair to say that everything we do in our life IS a choice. We can choose to be empowered or not. Further, it is my contention that the way we live our lives is totally based on the way we perceive it. Two things to consider when you decide to work with me... I believe that nothing changes if nothing changes, and that pain is the cornerstone of growth. To that point, I am grateful to call myself a Christian/Catholic and am happy to talk about Faith or Spirituality as a tool for positive change if the Client desires it. It is not my job to convert you, or bring you back to Church. Yet, I am happy to talk to you about Faith and Spirituality as powerful instruments of change if you so choose.
