I have worked with many groups from different social and cultural backgrounds for over 15 years. In that time, I have learned that making positive life changes comes from a non-judgmental and empathetic relationship between client and counselor, particularly when seeking help is one of the hardest parts of improving one’s life. Using different eclectic counseling techniques such as Solution-based counseling, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, and Client Centered approaches, I can help a person clarify their obstacles and dreams to help them achieve their goals.

Throughout my career, I have worked with clients in methadone maintenance where individuals and group counseling was utilized. While a counselor there, I dealt with young people seeking to regain the support of their parents and significant others. Additionally, I have worked in residential treatment programs for persons with mental illness where coping with life's transitions, symptom control and returning to the community was stressed. It is through past work that I have come to realize how important supportive environments and family systems are to individual recovery.

In my free time and to achieve balance, I enjoy hiking, cross country skiing and fitness. As an art major in the past, I have maintained my appreciation for painting and photography. Additionally, as time permits, I enjoy traveling and sharing my experiences.
