As a clinician, I am committed to helping clients resolve relationship, family, substance abuse, grief, trauma, spiritual journey challenges, or other stress issues in a supportive atmosphere of respect. Partnering with clients and families, I empower clients through the therapy process to identify and build on their existing strengths and proven successes. Together, we'll identify areas of opportunity and build experience and skill sets designed to assist you in creating positive, lasting change. I believe that clients are the experts on themselves and their lives, and therefore therapeutic goals are highly collaborative. As a team, we'll develop a treatment plan based on identified goals and resources. I offer a relaxed and positive environment in which clients can meet counseling objectives.
Prior to earning my Master's, I taught parenting for 15 years. My counseling experience includes:
- trauma-informed care
- aging parent issues
- substance abuse and recovery
- family issues
- parenting support
- behavioral (process) addiction
- abuse recovery
- life skills
- study skills
In addition to my private practice, I am an Assistant Principal/School Counselor in a small private school. On the weekends, I work in a psychiatric emergency room. Previously, I have managed a substance abuse program and also a grief support program.
My practice is inclusive and welcoming to non-traditional families and choices. I offer a nonjudgmental approach, and have experience supporting alternative choices. It would be an honor to assist you in enjoying a richer, more satisfying and healthy life. Evening appointments are available.
