Connection – Growth – Resilience – Serenity
Welcome to the beginning of your journey…
As a mental health and addiction counselor, I offer a collaborative, supportive, insight-oriented approach to therapy that is grounded in present-moment awareness and allows for exploration of the self with compassion. I view counseling as being a dynamic relationship between client and counselor where, through trust and insight, we create space to process what is needed to promote growth and change.
I specialize in treating the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual impacts of trauma, and the issues that come about as a result, such as addictions, mental health disorders, and relational disturbances. Going about facing these concerns can be intimidating, hopeless, and debilitating at times, so I do my utmost best to provide a safe, compassionate, and open space to work on these issues together. I focus on helping adolescent and adult individuals and couples living with the various effects of these concerns who are looking to expand their understanding of themselves and begin to heal.
My experience in counseling has varied over the years from working in addiction treatment settings to engaging with people in the outdoors, utilizing the natural world as a modality for healing. Throughout these opportunities, I worked with individuals grappling with a range of mental health challenges and diagnoses, including post-traumatic stress disorder, personality disorders, substance use disorders, depression, anxiety and chronic low self-esteem.
