As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I believe it is vitally important to provide my clients with a safe place to promote recovery, growth and personal development. It is also essential to provide an environment in which you are able to share concerns, feelings and address issues that impact your life so that I may help you navigate through the challenges you encounter. I seek to form a pressure-free partnership with my clients in which to jointly explore current and past difficulties, and traumas. Through this collaborative process, clients will build upon their inner strengths and resources in order to find and create the life they want to live.
The foundation of my practice is a client-centered, helping individuals, couples and adolescents transition through difficult times and issues. I have extensive experience dealing with addiction (of all types), anxiety, life transitions, grief, depression, parenting problems, and family of origin issues.
I have gained a deep understanding of the myriad of life's unexpected challenges through my extensive professional experience, formal education, and my own personal life's story. These unexpected and unannounced life events and circumstances that we encounter often knock us off balance in a way that disrupts our lives. I assist individuals/couples move through the unbearable dark side towards the bright side of life.
