Who I Serve

As a clinician, I see myself as a collaborator, someone that can help provide clarity in difficult situations and be the sounding board clients need in order to make positive changes in their lives, relationships, and futures. I also believe that people begin counseling services with the hopes of no longer needing them. Most people would rather have the skills, tools, and supports needed to manage the difficulties that life throws at them on their own. My job is figuring out how to help make that a reality. In working with clients I draw on a wide array of clinical experiences and expertise from inpatient, outpatient, and private practice work. The therapeutic approaches I utilize include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and Emotionally Focused Therapy. My clinical focus includes, but is not limited to: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, chronic illness, grief/loss, communication issues, life transitions, parent education, stress management, co-dependency, relationship issues, non-traditional relationships, and separation/divorce.
