About My Clients

I offer specialized treatment utilizing an (eclectic) integrative, holistic approach with all my clients, such as the Humanistic view integrated with Solution-Focused, Narrative, Cognitive approaches to change your focus solely on the problem. We'll find a path toward solutions to whatever is interfering with your peace of mind. I've worked with seniors, couples, survivors of abuse, LGBTQIA2S+, gender dysphoria, including individuals dealing with drug addiction, chronic issues, etc.

My Background and Approach

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I began as a school teacher for young children when I realized I could have more of an impact in a child's academic success, overall development, if I could help the family at home. After 12 years of teaching I became a school counselor; then a licensed psychotherapist. I have worked in private practice, and then the clinical setting for approximately 13 years. I have provided treatment for various issues including individuals dealing with grief, anxiety, eating disorders, relationship issues, trauma, sexual issues any and all adjustment or other societal issues. I have worked with individuals dealing with trauma, individuals dealing with trauma (PTSD) as well as those that survived human trafficking or traumatic events. My goal is to help you find the tools that lead to solutions so YOU can lead a productive, self-satisfying life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Since I personally believe everyone has value, I believe everyone's story should be heard and treasured. I am here to listen to you. Your thoughts, emotions, actions, and experiences are important to you despite our different path in life. I am there to validate your thoughts, emotions, and acknowledge the truth of your life experiences. I want what’s best for you. I am there to offer resources and recommendations, and it is all based on my respect for you. You will not be forced to do something you don’t want to do. This includes choices you make about your own treatment. I also believe that honesty is paramount in a therapist helping the client. That being said, a therapist doesn't know everything and should admit when at a loss in helping the client, so I pledge to be honest in that respect and to educate myself in the area needed in order to help you. I will do my best to be your ally (therapeutic alliance) and to earn your trust as we form a therapeutic relationship.
