Counseling for Adults, Teens,
Couples, and Families

The greatest help in overcoming our challenges is having someone there for us to listen and guide us in our time of need. As a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor, my mission is to work together with clients to help them cope with difficult emotions and life circumstances in a more positive way.

I specialize in counseling adults, teens, couples, and families who are experiencing personal challenges that may include:

· Depression

· Anxiety and related disorders


· Low self-esteem

· Divorce and blended family issues

· Teen, young adulthood, and parenting challenges

· Partner and relationship conflict

I have received extensive training in and use a variety of evidence-based modalities that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Family Systems Therapy, Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy, mindfulness-based practices and stress reduction depending on the specific needs of my clients. My ultimate goal is to help you live a happier and more fulfilling life.

Initiating counseling can be a little nerve racking. You can expect to be treated with warmth, compassion, and respect. Together we will focus on strategies to help you cope and improve your present situation while developing long-lasting skills for your future. I look forward to working alongside you to help you find relief and solutions, and move beyond your current struggles.
