I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families for more than 20 years with a focus on increasing personal strengths and fostering healthy relationships. I specialize in the treatment of trauma and anxiety, along with depression, stress management, life transitions, relationship issues, parenting, interpersonal struggles, and work and career issues.
Therapy is a collaborative effort in which the client and therapist work jointly to identify barriers to growth, resolve past traumas, and focus on strategies to improve wellness. My approach to counseling is warm, collaborative, supportive, and direct. My belief is that every person has the ability to heal, change and grow. A strong therapeutic relationship encourages trust and allows the client and therapist to work equally in a team approach on difficult issues. As part of this process, I work to create tools and coping skills to fit the needs of each unique person using a variety of techniques.
