I have been a licensed therapist since 2009, and love what I do. I work with teenagers and adults to better understand trauma, crisis, addiction. I am sensitive to cultural concerns, and work with the LGBTQ Community. I am solution focused and driven, and hope that my clients can figure out why they feel the way that they do, and how to move forward. I take an holistic approach to counseling and look at the whole person, not just the presenting concern. I have worked in schools for 20 years, and have worked with students in Special Education as well as being a school counselor. In my free time I enjoy golfing, hiking, reading, traveling, and spending time relaxing on the beach. A balanced life is imperative for a healthy life.
CLIENT CENTERED APPROACH
My clients participate in their treatman plan.
It is important for the client to help guide their process and understand just how resilient they can be in any situation. We move away from goal setting and focus on the process of healing.
Life throws many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. With my coaching sessions, you’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you.
