Meet our Counselors
Amherst, NY 14228
As a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, I have had broad training in family therapy and extensive experience in working with families that are battling with the roadblocks of parenting and conflict, as well as with marital and relationship issues, interrupted parent-child relationships, co-parenting and blended families.
I work with individuals, partners and families in distress from issues that stem from trauma, grief and loss, stress, life transitions and/or personal challenges. My expertise is also in helping people with their struggles with anxiety, depression and mood imbalances. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and motivational methods, as well as mindfulness and other relaxation strategies to help people find their own strengths and solutions. By using these approaches, I help people to feel that they have support and guidance as they learn how to deal with the struggles they face in their lives.
