Very few of us escape life’s stressors and hardships. Sometime it seems too overwhelming and too much to handle without help. You may find yourself turning to destructive behaviors, maybe drugs, self harm or other unfavorable habits and hang ups. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, loss , chronic illness, an addiction.
I began my career as a Registered nurse in the early 1980’s. I had a desire to help people in their weakest moments and worst situations since for as long as I can remember. I worked on the behavioral health unit of a large hospital for many years working with many different patients, diagnosis and treatment modalities. I later ended up in the school system as a school nurse case manager, While doing that I realized I wanted to be a therapist because the majority of my days were spent doing counseling. I loved working with teenagers, adults and families. I went back to college in my late 40’s and obtained my masters in counseling, substance abuse counseling and vocational evaluation. As a therapist I am holistic (mind, body and spirit). I use CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) (talk therapy that changes the way we think) I also use a strength based approach, as well as an intuitive approach. My goal is to provide encouragement, guidance and support. I would like to see you go from surviving to thriving. I love to help people brainstorm and problem solve When that is not possible, I will “sit with” whatever you are struggling with and together we will go thru it and figure it out.
