Do you feel stuck? Are you hurting?  Maybe you feel angry, confused, anxious, or depressed. Maybe you feel like you have nowhere else to turn. You have absolutely come to the right place. People come to counseling for a variety of reasons, and I can promise you that I will not judge or make assumptions about you, where you come from, or what brought you through my doors.

 

I strive to create an environment where my clients feel comfortable and safe. I want to welcome the authentic you, right where you are, and help you know that you are not alone. When we first meet, we will determine if we are a good fit for one another.  If for any reason we aren’t, I am committed to helping you find another professional to work with. I am currently a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor, and I am receiving direct supervision from Dr. Maria Vinca, licensed psychologist, until my licensure is complete.  

 

My primary theoretical orientation is psychodynamic, and I work with my clients to help them increase self-awareness. Often, we will explore the self by getting close to the past and learning how previous experiences are impacting present day life.  When I work with my clients, I desire to not just fix symptoms, but really get to the root of issues at hand. I know that what works for one person may not work for another. For this reason, I blend my treatment methods from a variety of theoretical approaches based on what will work best. I often use a mixture of gestalt and cognitive-behavioral techniques, and systemic approaches. I believe in the connection of mind, body, and spirit within each individual, and will help you reach a place where you can feel whole again, despite whatever you have faced in life. I believe that every client who walks through my door is worth the effort they are making to change their lives. I can tell you that you are worth it too!
