Meet Adrienne

Change is hard.  Together we can work hard to make any changes you need to feel like your best self. Sharing your needs and pains requires trusting someone to listen to you with compassion and empathy. Whether you have lost a loved one or have lost your spark, I aim to build a therapeutic relationship with you by discussing your vulnerabilities and helping you find relief and strength. 

My Approach to Therapy

I approach my clients needs in a collaborative way; we work together! We can explore and work on many issues, including anxiety, depression, stress, grief, relationship issues, and more. I am able to use various therapeutic techniques based on your individual needs. I apply strengths-based approaches and solution focused techniques to empower you to find your own answers. We can use Cognitive Behavioral techniques to find rational ways of thinking in order to feel better and we will create solutions towards more desirable behaviors. Together we will identify and accomplish the counseling goals for your personal success.
