At an early age, I decided that one day I would become a mental health therapist and help young people; and be there for others as I so desperately needed.
Eventually I found a wonderful therapist, and with the support of family, friends, and professionals, I was able to begin the process to healing. I went on to attend college and graduate school studying Mental Health Counseling, Administrative Leadership, and Substance Abuse Counseling. After working over ten years in various treatment centers with a myriad of populations, I decided I wanted to use my experience and background to treat clients in a private practice setting.
I treat BOTH addiction and mental health conditions that are simultaneously occurring at the same time.
I work openly with challenging young people struggling with behavioral issues. Most the people I meet in my office share that they have had negative experiences with counselors in the past, and I consider it my duty to ensure that they attempt to rebuild trust with me for the sake of healing.
I build trust and a therapeutic alliance with clients quickly and often work with them in better understanding the counseling process as well as the roadway to healing.
My goal is to get you feeling better, more balanced, and relaxed so that you can get back to the life you were living or start living a new and better life.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
