Mental health is a vital key to overall well-being and living life to its fullest potential. I believe it is often through our struggles that we learn, grow, and find meaning and value in our lives. My approach to counseling is focused on providing clients with a safe, nonjudgmental environment in which they are able to gain insight and find healing.
I value each and every person as an individual, with unique life experiences and individual needs, and work collaboratively with clients to identify and achieve their goals. Because no single approach is right for everyone, I utilize a range of therapeutic modalities including Cognitive-Behavioral, Gestalt, and Acceptance and Commitment-based theories.
In order to accommodate busy schedules, I offer evening/weekend appointments and counseling via Telehealth. I work with a wide variety of clients including adolescents, adults, couples, and families.

I am a licensed professional counselor providing psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and adults. I have experience working in an intensive outpatient program with children and teenagers with behavioral issues, emotional adjustment, and more complex psychiatric disorders. I have spent many years working with adults dealing with trauma and grief. I use DBT-informed therapy in helping clients through their challenges and empowering them to make positive life changes.
My therapeutic approach focuses on helping clients strengthen self-awareness and use self-discovery in taking actions that will improve the quality of their lives, provide them with a healthy sense of self, decrease emotional struggle and enhance positive interpersonal relationships. Appointments are available in the evenings and Saturdays.
