Counseling St. Joseph counseling st joseph counseling saint joseph

My theoretical orientation tends to be cognitive-behavioral, but I understand that everyone is different,  and I will use your strengths to help you become the best version of yourself.. I have been trained in family systems, motivational interviewing, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, biofeedback and other relaxation techniques.

I can meet with you on evenings or weekends. During the day, I work full-time as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, and teach Yoga and Pilates classes.


I believe anyone can benefit from counseling, and often you have to experience several counselors to discover the best fit for you. I hope that I can be your best fit! I have experience working with all age groups: from children and families to adolescents, college students, adults, and individuals with disabling conditions. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, dealing with traumatic experiences, recovering from drug or alcohol addiction, or just trying to learn more about yourself, I would be happy to work with you. I offer a warm, accepting and positive environment for you to discover your strengths and values.

Fee-for-service therapy has the highest level of security and confidentiality, as only a judge may request my client records via a subpoena. Insurance companies are not involved, thus your mental health diagnosis will not become a part of your medical record and stays only between you and me. This choice protects you from acquiring a pre-existing behavioral health condition on your medical record.


In-network: United Behavioral Health

Out-of-network: BlueCross BlueShield

Out-of-network means I can create a superbill which can be used to apply for partial reimbursement.


I accept cash, checks and credit cards. Payment must be made at the time of service. 


Because the appointment time is reserved for you, if you must cancel your appointment, it is important for you to do so at least 24 hours prior to the appointment time. Late cancellations are subject to the full fee of the session.
