I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Associate (LPCA) with 5 years of experience counseling in the following fields: school counseling, mental health counseling, and substance abuse. Specializing in the treatment of anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and life transitions, I focus on creating individual; treatment plans that are unique to the client, flexible in approach, and realistic to each client’s life situation.
I provide a safe and non-judgemental environment where we will work on obtaining optimal levels of personal performance, self-awareness, focused energy, and enhanced creativity. To help promote balance and harmony, I focus on the mind-body connection.
Through the use of mind-body therapy, we will explore your conscious and subconscious thoughts. I incorporate a variety of specific techniques such as Brainspotting, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness that help link communication between the brain and the body. As a result, you will learn how to regain control over your feelings and your behavior; rather than you being controlled by them.
Integrative therapy works with most individual, couples, and group settings with children, adolescents, and adults. I will always meet the client with where they are in their personal development and combine different therapeutic tools and approaches that will fit best with their individual characteristics, needs, physical abilities, beliefs, and motivation level.

Why should I go to therapy?
Feelings are sometimes hard to explain and even harder to deal with. Gaining an understanding of why you feel a certain way can help you regain control over yourself and how you respond to these feelings.
Support. You’re not alone and sometimes that’s all you need to know.
Self-Care. Your story and your emotions are yours. Have a safe place where you can express just how you truly feel about things and learn to regain control over your anxiety, fears, and insecurities.
Authenticity. Give yourself the freedom to be you. The real you. Readjust your perspective, improve your mental health, and gain the confidence you need to make everyday decisions easier.
Happiness. Yes, it is a choice, and sometimes getting a little extra guidance from a professional can help us stay on track.
