Discovery Your Greatest Self
Welcome! It takes courage and strength to reach out for support. I want my practice to be a place of encouragement and effective change. I realize the investment of your time, energy and resources is valuable. I look forward to assisting you on your journey.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist. I have been in the mental health field for 8 years. I work with adults providing mental health and substance abuse services.
I am a strength-based therapist, meaning that I focus more on your internal strengths and resourcefulness, and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. I believe we can all be resourceful and resilient in the face of adversity.
I use an eclectic approach drawing on evidenced based treatment modalities. I value treating the whole person and addressing all aspects of your well-being. Using a collaborative approach, my goal is to provide you with tools and guidance that will help you reach your full potential and navigate through life's challenges.
