People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “soften the orange a bit on the right-hand corner. I don’t try and control a sunset.” I watch with awe as it unfolds (Rogers, 1980). In my therapeutic work over the past 15 years I have been uniquely fortunate to watch as potential and destiny unfolds for clients. In my clinical roles I fully espouse a person-centered strength-based focus and approach with clients, to the end of collaborative problem solving with your concerns and goals at the heart of our work together.
Empowerment, personal responsibility, and deep emphatic connection are the driving forces of my counseling practice at Lotus Therapeutic Services.
I specialize in person-centered and evidenced based interventions with my clients. I have worked with individuals with substance use disorders as well as other mental health diagnoses.
I currently hold dual master’s degrees in General Counseling Studies and Clinical Mental Health & Rehabilitation Counseling. Additionally, I hold a specialized credential as a Master Addiction Counselor (MAC)
