I am a Licensed Mental Health Practitioner with 37 years of experience. I am passionate about counseling adolescents and adults who are hurting and healing.
I will meet you where you are and then walk the journey with you to get you where you want to be. I am known for a warm, practical approach to helping clients construct the lives they want. To achieve this, I believe counseling starts with just a conversation between two people working together to make real and lasting changes.
You will be provided with a non-judgmental environment where we can build a therapeutic relationship based on honesty and trust. If you want a therapist who will not be overwhelmed by anything you say in therapy, that you can trust, and who will be both direct and kind then this may be the right place for you. My sessions typically consist of exploring how the client's thoughts, emotions and behaviors can be positively affected through identifying one's purpose and a desire to change. Even though we all have the desire to change, change can be hard and many times we struggle to be consistent and find ourselves going in circles. I am your advocate, and with consistent therapy, I can be the person who helps you set your goals and then helps you stay on track to make real changes.
I have been providing online counseling exclusively for the last 5 years and find that it is a very safe and therapeutic option for many people. Online counseling can work, and in my experience, there are three ingredients needed for effective therapy: a desire for change, evidence-based therapy, and a positive relationship with your therapist.
My experience includes counseling adults and children who may be dealing with depression, anxiety, separation anxiety, selective mutism, ADD and sensory integration issues. I also have extensive experience working with individuals who have experienced trauma, abuse, domestic violence, emotional crisis, and relationship issues.
