Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

I became a counselor to be there for people in need. We are loosing too many people to suicide. People often view depression, PTSD, and anxiety as "weakness." This is so far from the truth..these things are "real" but they do not have to be "forever." My ultimate goal is for "you" to be empowered.

My therapy approach is based in "Reality Therapy" but I do not leave out any modality when customizing your treatment plan. I am not the kind of counselor who just "sits and nods." I will be engaged with you as we travel this path together.

My background has been working with victims of sexual/violent crime, teens, first responders, and military people. I have served along side all of these people and additionally worked in Iraq in 2005/06. Besides my Counseling Degree, I hold a Masters Degree in Education and I find this background helps me reach people more effectively. This is most helpful when assisting clients look at treatment planning through different methods that help them learn best. I believe these techniques lead clients to a greater success for the individual and/or couple.
