For the past sixteen years I have provided services to children, adults and families as a School Counselor and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. With a keen understanding of the public school system and disabilities, I have helped hundreds of students realize their potential. In addition, I have worked with adolescents and adults in a clinical setting in order to support self-awareness and positive change in their lives. My practice philosophy is built upon self-exploration. Who we are is comprised of our background, family dynamics, core beliefs, values and personal experiences. These elements shape us and significantly impact our relationships, career path, mindset and outlook on life. A deeper understanding of who we are helps us to navigate our lives more effectively and reach our full potential. Positive, healthy changes are often necessary to facilitate healing and growth. I provide a nonjudgmental, supportive environment where clients are encouraged to increase self-awareness, gain perspective, develop insight and learn new ways to cope with life's many challenges. I am a goal-directed therapist and am always considering the barriers that keep my clients from achieving their ultimate satisfaction. I help people obtain a sense of confidence in who they are, so that pushing themselves out of their comfort zone becomes achievable.
