About Me | Influences

I have been practicing as a licensed professional clinical counselor for almost twenty years and specialize in working with people who are struggling to live their best life. While receiving several degrees from highly reputable programs, I have been most influenced by the people I have worked with in the process of facilitating their healing. I know you will find that I am refreshingly practical, solution-focused and always professional while maintaining a compassionate, balanced demeanor. This helps many clients feel at ease and comfortable as they embrace their personal work. Incorporating a combination of alternative and conventional methods, I strive to create a safe, effective path for clients as they navigate toward the resolution of current and longstanding issues.
