My Approach

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral, Strengths-Based, and Mindfulness - Based treatment approaches. Over the past 13 years, I have worked in Inpatient and outpatient treatment settings and in Private practice my focus is on individual counseling for teenagers and adults. My areas of specialization include working with individuals with Acquired Brain Injury (TBI, Concussion, Stroke, Tumor, encephalitis.) as well as helping people who are struggling with symptoms associated with Chronic Pain, Depression, Anxiety, opioid related disorders, and Alcohol-Related Disorders. My treatment begins with gathering some history and learning about what brings you to counseling. In the time frame that works best for you, I will help you identify what is not going well and what is keeping you from the life you want to lead. I will be an empathic listener and encourage you to practice new ways of thinking about what is troubling you and teach ways you can make subtle changes to start feeling your best.
