I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than 20 years of counseling experience. I have the privilege of working with diverse populations in multiple settings dealing with a variety of issues. My therapeutic approach is integrative and strengths based: I use a combination of therapeutic theories and techniques best suited to you and your situation. We will work together to create an environment conducive to growth and change. I know how difficult it can be asking for help, we will build on your strengths to help you feel empowered and able to move forward.
