The word therapy or counseling can be very scary for some people but if there was one piece of information I could provide, it would be to think of therapy/counseling as a very safe and secure place to tell your deepest and darkest secrets without the fear of judgment or retaliation.
I am a very laid back person who goes with the flow of any process. If I were your counselor then you would recognize this right away and know that I am here to support and guide you rather than make you feel guilty for decisions you've made or are trying to make.
Developing therapy goals can be a challenge for clients but I will assist them in putting their desires and needs into achievable words through multiple discussions. We may develop a very broad goal and then narrow it down into two or more very detailed plans to assist the client with having a sense of accomplishment. The goals can be revised as often as needed and at the discretion of the client rather than therapist.

AL, LPC, 4119
When I initially began working with clients, I worked with children and adolescents who had been abused, both physically and sexually as well as victims of domestic violence, both women and children. I have also worked with individuals in active and recovering addiction. I have also worked with individuals in the community mental health setting and was the primary child and adolescent therapist; however, I worked with adults in all walks of life who were struggling with several different issues ranging from depression, addiction, anxiety, bipolar disorder and psychosis. I recently worked primarily with male inmates in a prison setting and addressed a wide array of issues. I am now working full-time in private practice.
