I have worked in the mental health field for over a decade in many different capacities. I have specific training around the areas of trauma and abuse, although I take a holistic approach to counseling. I work with clients to meet the goals that they have for their lives, whatever those may be. I have experience in working with many different challenges and life issues that people encounter. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, families and have had success in working with adolescent males. My goal is to foster a strong trusting relationship with clients so that they feel comfortable expressing themselves without fear of judgment so they can work through the change process. I work to empower clients to utilize their strengths to overcome the challenges that bring them to counseling.
