About

I always learn from the teens, young adults & families I’ve worked with, but this is most important for me to remember: Even behaviors that may appear ineffective from the outside looking in, usually have wisdom at their core. When a person is in pain, they generally want to feel better. My clients all come to therapy because what they’ve been doing to feel better ultimately isn’t working any longer. We work together to address what’s at the core of their pain & focus on managing that more effectively, without negative repercussions. We will together build a set of skills to help them feel more empowered & effective in their life.
I’ve worked for 17 years as a mental health counselor with issues like depression, anxiety, substance abuse, ADHD, body image, relationship challenges, stress, self-worth, identity, grief, transition & trauma. ​I’ve received training in ACT, CBT, DBT, EMDR and MI. I believe each individual must be met where they are. I treat the relationship as a priority.
It is important to me to get to know YOU. I will be intentionally curious and work to understand the experiences, challenges and strengths that have shaped you as a person. I am inherently curious, validating and compassionate and appreciate humor as as a powerful means of connecting with others. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to listen and help.
