I believe in meeting the client where they are at, building on their existing strengths while working on the issues that brought them into therapy. I use Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Solution-Focus, Strength-base, and motivational interviewing to help clients build their autonomy and move toward a better life without the need for therapy.

I became a mental health professional because I enjoy working with people and helping them find solutions to their problems and move forward in their recovery.
Spending time with husband, children, and grandchildren.
FaceTime my grandchildren, practice mindfulness, and I also love to spend time with my dogs.
NAMI because they not only provide support and resources to the clients, but they are also there for their families.
