Our path to life is rarely simple and without strife. I have a passion for helping individuals along their journey to their goals and own personal summits. I chose Summit Counseling and Consulting, LCC as my business name as I personally enjoy hiking in the mountains to allow me to gain perspective, dream big, explore and transform. I believe strongly in positive outcomes that can come from working with me to further your progress on your personal, family, or children's aspirations. I am here to provide a range of services including individual counseling, college and career advising, and educational consulting.
Since graduating in 2006 with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling while also earning certifications in School Counseling and Multicultural Counseling I have found my passion for working with adolescents, young adults and families. My therapeutic experience includes, anxiety, depression, ADHD, LGBTQ, substance use disorders, and school related issues to name a few. My experience in the field varies from working in the school setting, special education settings, outpatient counseling, adolescent substance abuse treatment program and providing individual counseling support both in outpatient settings and the community.
I find my therapeutic approach to be holistic and solution focused. I enjoy building relationships with the people that I work with and helping them navigate through the problems they are facing while guiding them to push their comfortable limits, find balance in their life, reduce stress, and become an active member of their community.
Additionally, I have helped many students navigate their way through post-secondary planning and I enjoy working with teens to find their way in life. I look forward to guiding youth and families through the college planning process and beyond.
Whether you are in acute need of counseling or educational guidance, or are in general seeking a more balanced and healthy lifestyle, I would love to meet you and your family and help you along your journey to your own summit!
