About Justin

Welcome! I am a licensed social worker experienced working in the substance abuse and mental health field. In addition, I am experienced with family/relationship issues, codependency, life transitions and stress management. I utilize motivational interviewing, solution focused, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, person-centered and inner-child work to guide clients towards their path of healing. I believe this journey is personal and unique for each individual and view the therapeutic relationship as a team effort to collaborate on identifying and challenging barriers towards desired change. Through a non-judgmental approach I aim to motivate you to recognize strengths and implement life skills to facilitate self-improvement and reach your true potential. I am a huge advocate for self-care and making time for activities that allow you to invest into your wellness. My personal self-care practices include spending time in nature, biking, running, meditation, music/dance and cooking.

You cannot think your way into a new way of living, but you can live your way into a new way of thinking."
