Licensed Professional Counselor Intern
I came to the counseling profession after more than 20 years in marketing communications. Both fields are focused on helping people and require similar skills for success: the ability to listen closely, ask the right questions, build trusting relationships and understand human thought and behavior.

I have used Motivational Interviewing with adults as a means to gauge their readiness for change, meet them where they are in the stages of change, and facilitate planning and progress toward actual and lasting change. Common issues include alcohol/substance use, codependency and other relationship difficulties.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is evidence-based, promotes measurable goals, and is among the most researched of all orientations. In its simplest form, CBT says that behaviors are prompted by feelings which are prompted by thoughts. If we want to change our feelings or behaviors, we can begin by examining the thoughts behind them. It is a concept clients can learn to apply independently as well.
I have worked with many adults in navigating the realization they are in a mixed orientation relationship after one partner or spouse comes out as LGBTQ. Together, we address the feelings they are experiencing as well as how they wish to move forward either independently or as a couple.
I have worked with adults exhibiting codependent behavior in a range of relationships—either with friends and family or intimate partners. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy we challenge the thoughts behind issues of low self-esteem, people-pleasing, lack of boundaries and more in order to find a path toward healthier relationships with others and with oneself.
I have worked with adults experiencing generalized anxiety, panic attacks and social anxiety. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, we examine the thoughts behind their worries and fears, finding ways to reduce and better manage their symptoms.
I have worked with adults experiencing symptoms of depression to examine the thoughts that are contributing to their feelings of sadness, anger, worthlessness, guilt and hopelessness. Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, we challenge the thinking behind those feelings as a means to reduce and better manage symptoms.
