My belief is that everyone has the capacity to change, confront challenges and grow each day. Therapy is a tool that can help people find their capacity to change. My counseling practice respects that power to change in each person . My counseling approach is rather eclectic involving both client centered and existential theory. I utilize a personalized approach combining interventions from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, motivational interviewing and choice theory tailored to meet your individual needs. I am passionate about working with clients and helping them discover new, healthier ways to address their mental health needs. When appropriate spirituality is infused in the counseling process. Treatment is data driven and evidence based.
I have experience working in hospital and community settings. Throughout my career, I have worked with children, adolescents and adults on issues such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and trauma.
