Who I Am

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Addictions Counselor.  I am very passionate about the counseling I do and the people I get to meet and interact with on a daily basis.  

I have thorough experience facilitating group therapy as well as individual therapy.  I am passionate and dynamic, but also consistent, reliable, and committed to the therapeutic process. No matter what you are struggling with today, I’m ready to meet you where you are and help you sort through things to lighten your load, no matter what it takes. If you’re not sure if we would be a good fit for each other, let’s hop on the phone for a free 15-minute consultation so we can talk and decide if we mesh.  

If we are a good fit (and I hope we are!) I assure you that if you show up, I’ll show up -- with my heart, soul & presence.  If you’re motivated and ready to work on you, I’m ready to support and encourage you along the way.

What Sets Me Apart

Even if we haven’t met yet, I already believe that you have what it takes to navigate anything, and I’ll do everything I can to help you see that, too. I will make you feel supported, empowered, and competent to make the changes you desire. I believe that healing comes from having a secure, safe, and trusting relationship with a professional counselor who will work collaboratively with you towards your goals.

Fair warning: I’m a realist, so there's no sugar coating here, sweetheart. I believe your time is valuable, so we’ll stay focused on the most efficient and effective way to sort out where you are so you can get closer to where you want to be.

I take an integrative approach to one-on-one counseling, which means I’ll utilize various forms of evidence-based practices with you in session.

I also truly believe in the power of group therapy, as it is able to provide strength and hope through connections with other people going through similar things, which can be an important supplement to our sessions. I lead various groups throughout the year depending on what my clients need and can benefit the most from.

my therapy style

PersonalizedTherapy should be unique and specialized for each person who walks in the room. I take pride in the personalized plan I work with each person to create for his/her treatment.

Integrative: I do not make you fit into therapy, I fit therapy to you.  I match evidence-based treatment modalities to the person I am working with based on his/her therapy goals. 

Efficient:  Your time is extremely valued. Whether you are stopping by on a lunch break from work, or needing to pick up the kids after our session, we will maximize our time together so that you can leave feeling accomplished as you fall back into the rest of your day.
