Professional Counselor

Do you feel anxious, depressed, irritable, or overwhelmed? Are you struggling to keep up or cope with life's demands? If so, I can help. My approach to counseling is one of non-judgment, compassion, and warmth. With that in mind, I help you implement practical solutions into your life.

My Approach

Depending on your reasons for counseling, I tailor my approach to meet your unique needs. We will collaborate on an ongoing basis to determine the course of our sessions together and I will take my cues from you as to what feels most helpful. I am always happy to answer questions you have about what to expect during counseling or the rationale behind my approach and tools I use. In order to provide effective counseling, I utilize a blend of methods from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Reality Therapy and Motivational Interviewing as is appropriate for each unique individual with which I work. Nurturing a spirit of mindfulness is also foundational to the work I do. During the course of therapy, I may use guided meditation, mindfulness practices, traditional talk therapy, cognitive-behavioral exercises, sandtray therapy or other forms of expressive therapy, or referrals for additional resources to help you reach your goals.

My Background

Initially trained as a marriage and family therapist, I have worked with children, teens, families, couples and individual adults since 2009. My specialities include helping people find relief from depression, anxiety, difficulties with life transitions, struggles coping with day-to-day life, unhealthy patterns of substance use, and dissatisfying relationships.
