My Mission

To provide behavioral health counseling and innovative support in a respectful and nurturing environment. To provide services that facilitate healing, encourage growth, and to overcome difficult life circumstances. Counseling allows us to take better care of ourselves, our relationships, and our families. 

My Methods


My counseling philosophy is strongly influenced by Glasser’s Reality Therapy and Beck’s Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.


I offer a variety of person-centered counseling techniques, including Brief-focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Motivational interviewing, Peripatetic (Walk and Talk) Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Services are tailored to your needs and provided by a caring professional.


My clients have experienced domestic violence, joblessness, substance use concerns, anger management struggles, and many other types of difficult life experiences. I provide counseling services for individuals 14 and older.

Fees & Insurance

I accept insurance, including Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, and Veterans Care Network Optum.

Clients that prefer not to file with insurance can contact me to discuss private pay rates.
