My personal style can be described as warm, encouraging, and connected. I am down to earth and find humor as a helpful way to connect. It is very important to me that my clients feel supported, understood, and motivated by the therapy process. I’m proud to provide quality services and own a therapy practice that fosters positive change.
I am m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor with 15 years of experience.
I founded M. & S. Counseling Services in 2011 and have provided therapy for individuals in this private practice setting since its opening. I have also worked in the VA system, in a non-profit setting, and community mental health.
