EXPERIENCE

Years in Practice: 39 Years

Many individuals seek counseling with me because they have had painful or traumatic experiences that interfere with their ability to live a satisfying life, one filled with meaningful relationships, the ability to experience joy, and the ability to manage life problems skillfully. They often feel stuck and, although they’ve tried hard, they continue to experience problems in relationships and often suffer from anxiety, depression and the effects of trauma. They want to move forward in their lives with hope, confidence and a sense of purpose.My training and experience as a therapist have taught me to approach my work with a deep respect for clients and the experiences that have shaped their thoughts, feelings and coping skills. In my work, I offer clients new perspectives and life skills that make room for growth and allow for greater compassion for themselves and others.I work to create a safe and supportive atmosphere with clients, characterized by respect and compassion. I want you to feel heard and understood. I also seek to understand the thoughts and beliefs that guide your thoughts and behavior. Together, we work to build and strengthen life skills that create room for growth and connection with self and others.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate-MC60902268

EXPERIENCE

I have been working in mental health since 2013 and have experience in working with children and people in crisis situations. I believe everyone should be met where they are, exploring the good in them not just the things people refer to as negative. There are many times people struggle in life that could benefit from a non-judgmental space to build a therapeutic relationship. Life is a struggle and we can all benefit from a listening ear and therapeutic relationship. It can sometimes take a few tries to find the right person who match for you. Therapy can be both difficult and enjoyable. I have worked with a very diverse group of people with a variety of needs from those with severe trauma, depression, anxiety, severe mental health problems as well as those struggling with self-harm and suicidal thinking. Therapy should be a safe space for people to come and process and heal from whatever they feel they need to. I believe everyone should be treated equally, with respect, dignity and have the right to work on themselves and heal in a space free of judgement. I feel empathy and honesty is a key part of this.
