I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) with over 25 years of clinical experience working with children, adolescents and adults in individual, family and group settings. My primary areas of clinical focus include trauma, affective and anxiety disorders and treating persons with sexual behavior problems and sexual abuse perpetrators. I am an out and proud member of the LGBTQIA+ community and have worked extensively with members of this community. I utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) and Solution-Focused Therapy as well as other modalities when treating my clients.
