My goal in therapy is to assist you in finding the best version of yourself. For so many, our best qualities are stuck behind trauma, learned behaviors, and negative thinking. I am here to help you unpack the hurt you’ve been through and make sense of it. If you feel like you don't really know yourself or you're just kind of going through the motions - I want to help you find purpose within your day to day lives. Time is going to move no matter what. With a little help from some therapy, I hope that you'll start to feel more in control of your life and your time.

I firmly believe that everyone has within them what they need to overcome their problems, achieve their goals, and improve their lives. Sometimes, we just need some support to help us figure out who we are and what is important to us to bring about change. I strive to be a warm and caring therapist who will meet you with authenticity and “realness.” I work to strike a balance between curiosity, compassion, and challenge to establish a safe space for you to honestly explore yourself and your struggles, sit with unpleasant feelings, and develop trust in your ability to make decisions consistent with your values.

Life is full of transitions, and while some are smooth, others can be a little more on the bumpy side. Those bumps in the road can affect our overall well-being, mentally and physically. Often, we may not even realize just how much mental health is affected by stressors that emerge in life. I am committed to helping guide you through the challenges and find helpful ways to cope. I provide services utilizing a person-centered approach, which encourages clients to be active and take the reins during sessions and throughout treatment.

Your alarm clock is going off, and that sense of dread sits in the pit of your stomach. You slept but you don’t feel rested. Brushing your teeth and getting dressed leaves you drained. The idea of “peopling” makes you want to curl in a ball. You have thoughts popping into your head that you aren’t “good enough,” are “an imposter,” or “a failure.” Everyday tasks can feel overwhelming, and you can be your own worst critic when struggling with life transitions, trauma, anxiety or depression. Asking for help can be daunting, as we are often taught to face those internal battles quietly and alone.

The solutions to life's struggles are elusive, and hard times have a way of leaving us filled with doubt, confusion, and hopelessness. These are some of the building blocks of anxiety, depression, resentments, addictions, and strained relationships, among other conditions. It's normal and can even be helpful to experience some worry, sadness, and other forms of tension, however for many these emotions grow to levels where they are no longer useful. If this resonates with you, please take a moment to assure yourself that you do not have to take this on alone. A life that is more fulfilling and manageable is within your reach.

For those who've faced trauma or were left alone to grapple with complex emotions prematurely, the skills needed to cope with difficult experiences can feel out of reach. Anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem can feel like an endless spiral as you battle between a you that feels capable and you that is knocked off your feet by overwhelming emotions. While in the past you may have been alone in the face of emotional distress you do not have to be alone now. I aim to create a space where you feel seen and heard as you become more comfortable with your emotions, find healing, and move from surviving to thriving.

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based approach, i.e., interventions that have shown to be effective through scientific research. Through supportive, caring interpersonal communication and collaboration I aid patients to live a values-guided life. Having taught, trained, supervised, and provided CBT services for over 35 years, I have worked with individuals across the lifespan who faced challenges of anxiety, depression, pain, OCD, chronic pain, and neurological disorders. I have also received 40 hours of advanced training in OCD. My services include assessment of ADHD, personality, bipolar disorder.

Transitions are a natural progression in life, which at times can leave us feeling alone, overwhelmed, and terrified. Much like the seasons; our hopes, dreams, and relationships change. Maneuvering through these chapters in our lives can be a daunting process. In my experience, when a person can share their struggles within therapy, they can begin to better understand their thoughts, emotions, and how this influences their relationships with others.
