Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
My sensitive and engaging, direct and practical, style is reported by my clients as one of their attractions to working with me. I work with Children, Adolescents and Adults, addressing ADHD, depression and anxiety, divorce, loss and medical trauma. . I would be honored with your trust in me.

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think".......By A.A. Milne. It is my deepest desire to actively assist those in need of support through life's challenges. I am eager to work with those experiencing a crisis, conflict, or seemingly unmanageable change in the course of life's events. I discretely assist individuals in finding solutions to some of the more challenging issues in life. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults in addition to people experiencing life with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. I have many years of experience as an educator, and as a clinical therapist working with people with special needs. My work is very interactive and homework is often assigned to practice new skills. The purpose of our work together is to build a relationship that fosters an environment that is personalized and centered on your goals and objectives. In meeting your goals and objectives you will not only be able to successfully navigate through these challenges, but be better prepared to face future challenges life may bring.
I became a therapist because of my personal experience with anxiety, depression, addiction, and autism. Life can be very challenging at times. From my own experience, I know how important emotional safety is in the healing process. I am committed to providing safe space for clients to talk about whatever they need to talk about. I want to help clients feel like they are being heard and understood. It is my goal to help clients become the best version of themselves.

My approach to counseling is that each individual has the potential within them to accomplish anything. My job is to help you realize that potential and to make peace with the issues that you face. Notice I never said anything about “getting over” what you have going on, because I believe that there are some things that make that impossible. But, I believe that if you are willing to work with me to achieve your goals, you can achieve the recovery you truly want My journey to the present day has been unconventional to say the least. I’ve worked in the mental health field since graduating with my Master’s Degree in 2007. I’ve worked with many different populations in many different settings. Most recently I have been working with clients who desired to end their lives, or who were too sick to go about their daily lives. I’ve also supervised others, taught at a college level, and made presentations to other professionals. In the real world, I’ve worked in the medical field, customer service, and I’ve owned my own business. I believe this varied experience allows me to be more emphatic as well as take a more common sense approach to treatment. I invite you to take a step toward something difficult and do something that is good for you. You always have the opportunity to go back to the way things were; that isn’t challenging in the least.
