As a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor, I understand the courage it can take for clients who are taking the first step in the counseling process. That first step can be scary but together, we can explore the issues and circumstances that are creating stress.
My goal is to work with clients to explore areas of concern and be a partner and a resource in developing strategies and strengths that can support coping with life’s challenges, navigating the change process, and fostering wellness and personal growth.
My main areas of focus include providing support for a wide range of issues — from the challenges of work/life balance, changing family roles and questions about identity, issues related to the stress of aging, illness and caregiving, to coping with the pain surrounding death and loss. I also provide support related to substance use and recovery processes using a DBT lens.
