About

I am passionate about what I do and I love working with all kinds of people to help them with their problems whether its anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, family, school, marital, work, or relationship problems. My goal is to help my clients feel safe, heard, understood, and to help them reach their goals. I believe in individualized care and treatment as everyone is different and has different needs and aspirations for themselves. I love working with kids, parents, adults, and couples to help them solve whatever communication issues they are having in order to facilitate care. I want to help people live their best life every day.
Individualized care is as important to me as it is to you because successful treatment depends on understanding your needs and circumstances. We believe in collaborative care which is why our psychiatrists and therapists will coordinate care with schools or providers when necessary, to develop a treatment plan that fits your needs and achieves your goals.
My practice specializes in helping children and adults of all ages who suffer from mental, emotional, relationship, behavior, or learning problems. If you struggle with any or all of these conditions, we can provide the therapy and/or psychiatric treatment you need to help you live your best life. We treat all ages and accept most insurances.
