My counseling style is warm, caring, and interactive. I create a safe, stigma-free environment where all clients are treated with respect, dignity, and compassion.

I work to form a treatment plan in coordination with the client so that we can have the most successful counseling relationship possible. Together we can begin to create a space where they feel seen, heard, and understood. As we discover potential underlying issues, I integrate cognitive behavioral therapy with strength-based approach to help people change their thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behavior to improve their current situation and their work and interpersonal relationships.



My goal is for my clients to enjoy the challenges presented during sessions and find the modifications that we devise together are the changes they seek. Many of my clients already have the answers and just need help finding their way to take next steps to realize their transformation. I am completely dedicated to providing my clients with the emotional support and guidance to achieve healthier and happier lives.
