I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate with over 15 years of experience working in the mental health field. Before becoming a mental health counselor, I worked for many years as a behavioral coach. This combination of mental health counseling and behavioral coaching together are the foundation of my therapy approach. I use a "treat and move your feet" approach to helping people create change in their lives. Essentially what this means is that we work together to help you to understand how/why things are as they are while simultaneously identifying necessary behavioral changes you need to make to create a new, more healthy experience. You will get a lot of opportunity to practice new thinking and new strategies.
I provide services to individuals and couples wanting to make lifestyle changes and manage mental health challenges.
If you are hoping to get closer to your partner, make amends with a friend, set boundaries with a child, or learn to love your own wonderful self; I'm excited to help! Whether your partner is willing to come with you or not, change begins with you.
I work best with people looking to change what/how they think in order to experience self-understanding, self-acceptance, greater connection in relationships and be more authentically themselves.
If you have been in therapy before and feel that your therapist was a blank slate, this will not be your experience working with me. What you get when working with me is a supportive partner, armed with a good deal of training and tools. I take a direct, often humorous, no bs approach. None of this is easy! This will be a collaborative relationship that is 100% focused on helping you to make the changes that you need in order to experience the life and relationships that you desire. Let’s begin this journey in a brand new chapter of your life, together.
