Let's Build Hope! I strive to create a validating, non-judgmental environment to teach you skills to manage anxiety, overwhelming emotions, improve relationships, and modify behaviors. You can develop the healthy life you desire. Humans experience emotions! Sometimes we may think there is a right way and a wrong way to feel and distress means, we are feeling the wrong way. That is a ton of pressure! Sometimes, our emotions become distressing. Sometimes we worry. Few are taught to manage emotions and anxiety effectively and distress can lead to self-blame, defeated feelings, strained relationships, self-harm, and more. I can help!

Individuals seek therapy for many issues. I have been afforded the opportunity to work alongside people that want help in managing Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem barriers and daily stress. Often times these issues are masked by deep rooted trauma, grief and abuse. Individuals need encouragement, support, feeling that they are heard and validation while on their journey to healing.

The decision to begin therapy is a very challenging decision to make. It can also be very scary, which can cause us to remain frozen between the fear of change and the fear of staying the same. I view psychotherapy as an opportunity to face the space between who you are and who you want to be. I offer a laid-back approach to therapy utilizing humor, accountability, warmth, and empathy. In collaborating closely with clients, I work to help them understand themselves better and use that understanding to effect positive change in their lives.
