Everyone needs help sometimes. Life comes with challenges and finding support is important in order to face them, especially when the challenges feel like more than we can handle on our own. I believe that every person has the strength they need to face these challenges with the right support in place. I am here to offer whatever is needed: a safe place to freely speak your mind without judgment, a chance to be understood, an ally to look at situations and options, a companion to offer new ideas and perspectives.
I have been in the counseling field since 2006 and have worked in many different settings with a diverse group of people. I have experience working with a wide variety of issues, including: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder. Currently, I work with teens and adults. I recently became certified through the AANE to provide Neurodiverse Couples Counseling, which is a personal interest of mine due to having a Neurodiverse family. I also enjoy working with Autistic Individuals as well as their partners and parents. Having previously worked in a recovery community for 10 years, I also have a passion for working with individuals facing their addictions and working towards recovery, whether alcohol, drug, gambling, food or other process addictions. I am a strong ally for the LGTBQIA+ community and have an interest in helping to explore experiences related to gender, sexuality and living in a world that often lacks understanding. I also have a strong interest in working with women to explore women’s issues: mental/emotional load, body image and acceptance, parenting and gender disparity.
In working with clients, I prefer to collaboratively determine what approach and what pace will be the right fit for each individual. My approach to therapy is predominantly Person-Centered, while also incorporating elements of Motivational Interviewing, AANE Neurodiverse Couples Counseling (AANE.org), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Positive Psychology, Collaborative and Proactive Solutions model (CPS), and Existential Therapy.
