 I hold a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and am an Associate Clinical Mental                                               Health Counselor. I also have a BA in Social Work. While I am trained in a variety of                                                             treatment modalities, the actual counseling approach I use with a given client is determined                                                 by that client’s preference and personal goals, as well as the nature of the issue being                                                         addressed. I do have additional training in Play Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. I have always been authentically interested in the well being and uniqueness of everybody around me. I can provide a safe place to explore issues that may be preventing you from living the life you want. My experience includes working with clients 3 years old to 63 years old with a variety of issues involving sexual abuse, domestic violence, depression, ADHD, anxiety, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, anger issues, grief, single parenting, and other mood disorders.
