Individuals, Couples, Groups
My framework for counseling is solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral and systems. Using a strengths-based and trauma-informed approach, I will assist you with looking at real life problems and your present functioning while still understanding and addressing past experiences that might be impacting your everyday life.
