You deserve someone who provides an open and non-judgemental space to explore the spectrum of life experiences. You deserve someone who listens, who looks to increase wellness and not just diagnose and reduce sickness, who doesn’t push you to take medications if they aren’t medically necessary, who recognizes when just therapy by itself is appropriate over medications. I work with motivated, ambitious people on a journey of discovery and self improvement. Accepting new clients! Email&Text available."

"Hello there. I treat individuals and families who are suffering. Often they are still trying to find a diagnosis or have had other treatments. Or, they may know their problem area and want help working on it. Anxiety or depression may bring someone to treatment, but what is going on is usually much more complicated than that. My approach is emotionally honest, warm, and personalized. I use medications when appropriate and also provide individual and couples psychotherapy. I also do 'just medication' with select therapists that I am comfortable working with."
