Overview

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate in WA & TX, a National Certified Counselor, Certified School Counselor & Educator.

Most of my sessions are like conversations with a longtime trusting friend. Our first session or two, we'll work to establish a counselor/client relationship, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and what you want to gain from the process.

Depending on the client and understanding their uniqueness, I integrate various methods within our sessions. I like to start with Person-Centered and pull-in CBT, Reality and Solution-Focused techniques.

It's important to remember that growing up and parenting isn't easy. Both experience conflicts, stress & heartaches; then, add social media influences, job & school expectations, inflation, evolving family structures. Whew, life quickly becomes overwhelming. Talking with a counselor brings hope, awareness, problem-solving and solutions.

Counseling isn't the fastest solution, but it's worth the journey.
