Therapeutic Approach

I look forward to learning about the life and story of each new client. I seek to listen without judgment to the history and circumstances that bring each client to counseling. As I gain understanding of each client’s situation, I then come alongside them to clarify or establish counseling goals. Utilizing person-centered and cognitive behavioral therapeutic techniques, I help clients identify disruptive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative impact on behaviors and emotions. Then I help clients learn healthy coping skills and strategies for reducing emotional distress so they may function more fully and achieve their life goals.

Treatment Issues

Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Issues, LGBTQ+ Community Issues, Women’s Issues, Parenting Concerns, Life Transitions, Self-Esteem Issues

Treatment Population

I work with adults and children ages 6 years old and older.

My Journey

I have been drawn to helping people throughout my life. There have also been difficult times in my life when I needed help. When my children were young, I stayed home with them. As they grew up, I began pursuing careers in which I played a role in helping others. I have been a math teacher, school counselor, kindergarten aid, and coach. When I was working as a school counselor, I realized that I loved the counseling part and not so much all the other parts of a school counselor’s role. That is when I decided to go back to school to complete my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling so I could pursue my passion of helping individuals be their best selves.
