Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Have you lost yourself? Are you going through the motions in your daily life wondering the last time you truly felt happy in your own skin? Whether you are struggling with family issues, a diagnosis, or how to adjust to life’s ever-present changes, I get it, and I am here for you. I provide a non-judgmental and compassionate environment tailored to your unique needs. I have been in the Mental Health field for over 10 years, working in both private, clinic, and hospital settings. My focus is on helping you to resolve areas of immediate concern, and then develop a plan to get back to a life you feel good about. It’s time to empower yourself to set boundaries and make choices that will positively effect your life.

Professional Experience

My practice utilizes evidenced based mindful therapy tailored to your specific situation, which can include Motivational interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral, Cognitive Behavioral, Resilience, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapies. I have special interest in working with clients dealing with issues such as: adjustment & mood disorders; trauma; adjustment to family member illness or substance use; general grief/loss; and life transitions such as childbirth, divorce, or empty nest issues.
