She specializes in treating anxiety, depression, and trauma related concerns. She works with clients from a variety of cultural backgrounds and have seen how trauma can cause lifelong suffering. We often do not reach out until aspects of our life have already been affected in a negative way - for instance, when relationships have fallen apart, or when we have lost a job. Reaching out for help is not a sign of weakness, but rather it is a sign of strength.

We often come into our personal behaviors, thoughts, & feelings because they have helped us survive our own anxieties. As adults, often habitual patterns of behavior inhibit us from growing into the effective human beings we expect ourselves to become. Freedom, in its broadest sense, can be limited, depending on our own thought patterns, emotions, and our personal responses/reactions to our emotions. Together, we can look at patterns of behavior, private thoughts and feelings with empathy and without judgment. We can explore how freedom of thought and emotional reactivity can help you achieve your personal goals of actualization.
