Counselor , MA , LPC , NCC , CRRT

(618) 205-6790
Relationships are the fabric of our lives. At times they can be joyful and at times they can be stressful, even painful. I specialize in relational difficulties. I will assist in recreating these connections so they can be of benefit to you and those you love. Together we can address current and past relationships and pinpoint the areas of your life where you seek improvement. Feelings such as depression, anxiety or struggles with self esteem can stem from relationships or traumatic events we have experienced. My focus is to free you of these negative emotions.
I am here to remove the road blocks that can sometimes slow us down or bring us to a stop. Contacting me is the first step in moving forward and improving your relationships. I work with adults, adolescents, couples, families and caregivers.
I utilize methods that are effective for most clients in just 3-5 sessions. The benefits are persistent and provide clients with not only relief of symptoms from issues such as PTSD, but also a sense of resiliency as life poses new challenges.
