Counselors

Counselors help you work through your struggles and understand your feelings better. They talk about things from your past, what’s happening now, and what you’re worried about for the future. Counselors also help you manage any mental health conditions you might have.

Licensed Counselor and RN specializing in personalized, affordable care. Known for effective, compassionate treatments. Here to help you achieve your best life.

*Doesn’t bill insurance directly, but will provide documentation to assist with filing and/or FSA/HSA reimbursements.

As a Licensed Counselor and Registered Nurse, I have a broad understanding of how the mind and body work together to restore wellness. I have a compassionate approach and utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy but will opt for other treatment approaches that are most effective to meet your needs. I am an expert in developing and implementing individualized treatment plans. I have been successful in connecting with my clients on a level defined by them, allowing me to delve deep into their problems and provide well-suited solutions. My counseling style is participatory, which is the secret of my success with many clients with mental health issues. When helpful, I take a collaborative approach to include the client’s medical team and this is where my experience as a Registered Nurse is invaluable. I have extensive experience in treating clients with depression, anxiety, grief, substance abuse/dependency, PTSD and many other mental health concerns. I focus my treatment to meet the clients needs and offer support to families. I work with children, adolescents and adults in individual, couples and group settings to best suit my client’s needs. My top priority is to provide you with the therapy you need to live your fullest and happiest life! I will not allow cost to deter you from pursuing self-improvement and will work with you to accommodate your financial needs. I work very hard to help each individual accomplish their goals. This is more than my job – this is my passion!

Coaches

Life coaches help you set and reach goals for making your life better. They ask questions to help you think about your own solutions. Coaches focus on what you can do today and what steps to take next, rather than talking about past events or mental health issues.
