For almost 15 years, I’ve been fortunate to follow my calling professionally. I’ve helped individuals of all ages manage life transitions and challenges. I use a variety of approaches for both short-term and long-term therapy including solutions focused, strengths focused, cognitive behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, and others. I also enjoy working with children and adolescents who are engaged and interested in therapy. When they are disinterested, I find parent coaching is the best method of intervention. For addictions, my approach is tailored to the individual’s own choices and health needs whether harm reduction and/or abstinence.
Growing up, I watched and learned from others dealing with challenges of mental wellness as well as hard life circumstances. My love for them provided the foundation for my empathic understanding of others’ struggles. Their vulnerability helped me to understand the difficulty of entrusting your life story to another and accepting help. I look forward to getting to know you and helping you on your journey.
