I joined Citizen Advocates as Licensed Mental Health Counselor in 2007 where I have been working as a clinic-based therapist in the Saranac Lake Behavioral Health Clinic, offering both remote and in-person services. I service clients of all ages and backgrounds through group therapy, couples counseling, family therapy, and individual therapy sessions. Though well versed in multiple theoretical models and techniques, including specific focuses in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Parent Management Training, and Trauma-Informed interventions.

“I believe that a main duty of my job is to help clients hold a mirror to themselves in order to determine how to best live to their full potential. I also firmly believe that the most important element of successful therapy is the therapeutic relationship between client and counselor.”
