I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and a Certification in Drug and Alcohol Counseling. I have recently completed a certificate program for Sex Therapy. I am also a Level III Reiki Practitioner and firmly believe in the power of holistic counseling. I specialize in working with adults, and have experience working with adolescents, couples, and families. I have a focus on those practicing alternative spiritualties, those struggling with trauma/PTSD, survivors of sexual trauma, male survivors of childhood sexual trauma, and first responders.
My experience has prepared me to work with a variety of concerns including depression, various mood disorders, eating disorder, self-injury, addictions, substance use, personality disorders, grief and loss issues, PTSD, emotional trauma, sexual trauma, LGBTQ+ issues, sexuality/intimacy concerns, sexually compulsive behaviors, and counseling directed by alternative spiritualties.
As a counselor, it is my goal to help people live their lives with genuineness and authenticity. I believe in open communication and create a safe space for my clients where all areas of life can be explored without judgment. I explore the meaning in life using humor and perspective.
"You wake up every morning to fight the same demons that left you so tired the night before and that, my love, is bravery".
