Licensed Professional Counselor

There are times in life when we can be overwhelmed by our circumstances and all that we need is someone to encourage us and accompany us on our journey. I believe that we all have the ability to change and make better choices but sometimes that is difficult to accomplish on our own. That is what counseling offers. I encourage and challenge my clients to be their best selves and to experience life to the fullest. With a supportive, non-judgmental approach, we will work together toward growth, validation and self-discovery. I utilize a variety of theories and techniques to specifically fit each client’s needs and to reach desired goals.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a Master’s of Science in Community Counseling from JBU. I work with adults who experience depression, anxiety, grief, loss, abuse, trauma, self worth/self esteem issues, and relationship conflicts. I have also spent significant time working specifically with adolescents and their families to help them overcome traumatic experiences, emotional distress, behavioral concerns, and relational difficulties.

I believe there is hope in all circumstances and healing to be found. Whatever brings you to therapy, you can expect that I will provide you with compassion, respect and understanding as we journey together.
