At times life becomes complicated, and coping with stressors can be overwhelming, but seeking therapeutic support can be the first step to wellness. I strive to create a safe environment where you feel heard so you may be able to experiment with who you want to become, and to empower change in your life. I believe in building a relationship of trust and offering individualized care in a non-judgmental environment.
I use a blend of clinical strategies based on client centered care with a solution focused, strength based approach using creativity to adapt to client’s needs. I received my Master’s Degree in counseling from Geneva College where I learned the importance of wellness through addressing body, mind, and spirit, which I bring into my practice.
As a former teacher I gained an understanding of the development of children through adolescents. My experience as a Professional Counselor spans several treatment areas including teens, women’s issues, trauma, life transitions, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse issues. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, and families to help them reach their full potential.
My goal is to help you to identify barriers, empower change, and to instill hope for wellness.
“There is hope, then, that anything can change.” -Virginia Satir
