Professional Philosophy
Counseling Philosophy

My focus is to meet individuals and families wherever they are with unconditional positive regard. I believe people are the ultimate experts about themselves. I am committed to help them achieve their goals by acting as a partner in their journey toward healing, using a trauma informed, cognitive behavioral approach while utilizing evidenced based methods. That means that I have been trained to help people understand the connection between their thoughts, feelings, and what they do!

I am experienced in providing cognitive behavioral therapy to people on probation and parole. I have experience working with children and adults who have experienced sexual abuse. I use a trauma-informed approach and focus on early attachments. I help clients identify counseling goals and plan a treatment plan according to individual needs.I 


I have special training in a positive parenting model. After one session, a client recently reported, "it was like sprinkling pixie dust on them!"
“Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.”
Self-Determined Care
My foundational belief is that each person I meet is the expert of who he or she is. With a combination of my professional training, years of experience, and a commitment to partner with my client, we work together to build a treatment plan.
