Therapy, for me, provides a supportive framework for this process. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience working with adult populations struggling with substance use, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, adjustment crises, grief and loss, and personality disorders.
I have degrees in Professional Counseling, Fiction Writing, and Mass Communication and spent 15 years as an educator and workshop facilitator prior to becoming a counselor. My academic pursuits and personal life have been dedicated to the study and practice of communication and what it can do to facilitate human growth and development and by doing so, express and heal psychic wounds.
As a counselor, I bring curiosity, sensitivity, and insight to my work with clients and draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches to meet their needs. However, my true strength as a counselor is as a captive listener of other people’s stories, a conscientious, attentive, and caring reader of other people’s lives.
