Everyone has a time in their lives when their ways of coping fall short. I believe that it is in our human nature to be incredibly resilient and that counseling can help you to reset that which already lives inside of yourself. I provide counseling through a holistic lens incorporating solutions through mining your life for what is working and helping you correct thoughts or behaviors that are getting in the way of your happiness.
I work with adults and adolescents struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, change, relating to others, grief and loss, recovery from alcohol and other drug abuse or dependence. I am committed to working with a diverse clientele and honor multiculturalism. I am also a LGBT affirming counselor.
I am enrolled in the following insurance plans:
Blue Cross/Blue Shield
United Health Care
Because the relationship between therapist and client is so important for therapy to be successful, I offer a free phone consultation to see if it feels like we might be a good fit. I look forward to hearing from you!
My background in the counseling world is quite mixed. My Master's degree is from Antioch University in Counseling Psychology with a focus on multicultural studies. I have worked everywhere from working on boats with adolescents in gangs, to working in the chemical dependency field, to seeing clients in a managed care setting and even working in the public schools. I am a teacher and a supervisor for new counselors and consultant for seasoned counselors.
