As a therapist, I strive to create an open and non-judgmental environment with my clients. I
find that trust is essential to begin working on the difficult issues that present themselves in the
counseling relationship. I utilize evidence-based practices tailored to fit the specific needs of
whomever I am working with. My goal is to create an individualized treatment plan for success
in tandem with my client as we work through various sensitive topics of concern. Life can be
difficult at times for everyone, and I view my job as counselor to be that of a guide to help a
person utilize both existing and new tools for communication to better cope with their
relationships and perception and reactions to the world around them. Any self-defeating
behavior, relationship, habit, or addiction can oftentimes be eliminated with the help of
therapy because that person with the issue is provided with a new way of looking at an old
problem and means for solving it.

I graduated from Tulane University with a bachelor’s degree in communication and psychology
and received my master’s degree in advanced practice counseling from the Hazelden Betty Ford
Graduate School of Addiction Studies. I have experience working with individuals, families and
couples who struggle with addiction, men’s issues, gambling, trauma, grief, depression, and
anxiety… to name a few things. My varied clinical experience in Minnesota and Michigan has
allowed me to work with multiple populations. I’ve enjoyed working with members of the
LGBTQ+ community, adults, teenagers, men, women, and people across many different
cultures. I am partial to utilizing trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy in my practice.

I look forward to us hopefully working together soon. Know that you have taken the first step in
coming to this page and considering entering therapy. Many individuals do not have the
courage it takes to meet the challenge of self-improvement. This is the first step toward a more
authentic and genuinely fulfilling life, good for you!
