Welcome to my counseling practice. I am committed to helping you achieve your personal goals during the time we work together. My experience spans a period of approximately twenty years in the mental health field, receiving my Bachelors Degree in Psychology in 1994 and a Masters Degree in Social Work from Arizona State University in 1996. I have worked in a variety of treatment settings, including inpatient, outpatient community settings, hospital and psychiatric crisis centers, and private practice. My formal training is in a Family Systems approach, and primarily use cognitive- behavioral approaches in my practice. I work with individuals (teens and adults), couples, families and have areas of specialization in trauma/grief and loss, palliative counseling, teen counseling and am certified to treat addictions.
I view the therapeutic relationship as an active partnership, we have one common goal and that is to get you unstuck! Therapy to me is a means to identify and surrender destructive behaviors and patterns that interfere with you obtaining your goals (and ultimately quashing your happiness!) and a process that facilitates you living the life that you want, living your truth.
