As a Solution Focused and Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I believe in creating goals and assisting my clients to meet those goals. We address negative patterns of thoughts and behavior and reframe them. I believe the best way to move forward in life is to know what got you here, what is holding you back, and what behaviors can be changed to move forward. My clients range from seeking help with addiction, anxiety, depression, adjustments in their life (children, divorce, illness) , as well as guidance in creating the healthy and happy life they envision for themselves.

I am passionate about the field of mental health and have over a decade of experience treating depression, addiction, anxiety, and trauma.
"There but for the grace of God, go I." This is an expression that resonates and inspires me to help others. The mental health epidemic is a problem that will not go away without the recognition that we are vulnerable and must face it head-on, without judgment, and with compassion.

I have worked extensively with those struggling with drug/alcohol addiction and Bipolar Disorder.
**I offer both in-person and telehealth therapy** As humans, we are so unique that at times we lose sight of the reality that we share many of the same challenges and internal conflicts. That is the mindset that fuels my work as a licensed psychologist. I believe that until an atmosphere of understanding, non-judgment, and connection is created, therapeutic work cannot be accomplished. Once created, I focus on helping individuals dig in and be curious about what is behind their troubling behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and life circumstances. I then assist in developing coping skills to promote personal growth and life fulfillment.

Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab.

As a former collegiate athlete and current sports junkie, I understand the complexities that a student or professional athlete experiences: pressures of in-game performance, anxiety of future college decisions, maintaining academic performance along with athletic pressures, life transition after sports career ends. All of these can produce intense anxiety and addiction which can cause shameful, intrusive thought patterns. I focus on combating shame by identifying strengths, expanding coping strategies, and understanding family patterns.
