I have experienced the benefits of counseling personally, as well as through my work with individuals, couples and families. I have helped people with a broad range of concerns and difficulties, including excessive anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, trauma, chronic pain management, relationship difficulties and serious mental health problems. I am especially skilled in helping individuals with addictions, including family members of individuals with addictions.

Counseling credentials include Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), National Credentialed Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor (LCDC). I am a Board Certified Coach (BCC). Additionally I have completed advanced level training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy .

I am a member of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH) and the American Psychological Association (APA)
