That tightness in your chest, laying awake in your bed at night thinking about all the things your “should have” done, pacing the room, the worry if “am I good enough,” worrying if you forgot something, constantly thinking people are thinking negative things about you—these are not healthy thoughts and they most likely did not happen overnight. The goal for all my clients is to help alleviate these symptoms by connecting in a genuine and real way so that you feel heard, valued, and comfortable enough to address the root cause of these symptoms. It’s okay if you don’t know why they started either, we will figure it out together.

Everyone goes through difficult times in their lives where they feel unsettled and unsure of their direction. These moments often come with feelings of anxiety and depression that can weigh you down and make you feel stuck. I want to help you move past these feelings and work toward the life you have always wanted. To do this I work from a person-centered perspective and feel that the relationship between therapist and client is of the utmost importance. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and couples dealing with depression, social anxiety, ADHD, life transitions, addiction, and relationship issues, just to name a few.

Deciding to take those initial first steps toward seeking help through psychotherapy can be challenging. Some initial concerns may include, "How will I know if the therapist is competent?" "What if they judge me?" "Will I feel comfortable telling them what I am really feeling and thinking?" These concerns are extremely common in trying to find the right therapist for you. The key phrase is "the right therapist for YOU..." Everyone is different with different needs. I encourage you to read about my experience and the services I provide in to see if I may be the right therapist for you.

When Life feels overwhelming or unsettling, we often need someone who can consider our situation with more objectivity than we possess. I have been a psychologist for over 20 years and believe in the power of therapy to (1) help us navigate challenging times and (2) learn new strategies that help us reach our potential. I begin every first session with the same opening: "Tell me why you're here and how I could help." Then I ask the clients to tell me their stories. I love listening to people's stories because our stories remind us of where we have been and give us a context for the current and future chapters of our lives.
