I am a mental health professional with over twenty-three years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in various settings. In my current position as Mental Health Counselor, I provide viable counseling and necessary services to my clients. My counseling techniques are advanced, well-defined, and effective at meeting the needs of my clients. Moreover, my counseling skills have proven to be viable, and as a result, clients have demonstrated great progress. I am also organized with an attention to detail. My interpersonal skills enable me to establish and maintain a good rapport with my clients. I enjoy helping them to reach goals and learn new behaviors. I am an approachable, compassionate, and competent counselor. Demonstrating adeptness in my area of expertise, I also help high performers manage anxiety and avoid burnout. Together, we can identify what's not working and get you back to balance. We'll use a whole-self approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body, and spirit. I also integrate mindfulness, and art to help you develop a stronger relationship with yourself. Whether you're dealing with overwhelm, relationship issues, or cycles of anxiety and depression, I can assist you with my highly competent skills. Seeking therapy can feel scary, but you are making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I will meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the issues and habits holding you back. Let's work together!
