I obtained my Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from Cappella University in December of 2015. I have more than 13 years of experience in the mental health field.

I have experience in working with adults, adolescents in groups, couples, and individual settings. My areas of treatment focus on personal, behavioral, emotional, relationship, and family difficulties, and clients living with histories of addictions. I am trained in Motivational Interviewing, Co-occurring diagnosis, and Cognitive Behavioral Intervention groups.
I work with a diversity of individuals ranging from youth and adults who have experienced trauma, but the bulk of my experience is with adults. I provide individual counseling , marriage, and family counseling, couples counseling, group counseling, and clinical assessments. I also work with individuals with anger management, grief, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, men and women issues, lack of motivation, separation/divorce, and phobias. I am equipped to work with a diverse and multicultural population. My main theoretical orientation is Solution Focused Brief therapy, which focused on solutions rant than analyzing problems. I utilize different techniques from theories of Person-Centered Therapy, Motivation Interview, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I accept that everyone has unique situations and struggles, and I utilize my creativity to tailor my approach to counseling for each client.
