Currently Accepting New Clients. I believe that therapy is not the process of fixing a problem, but rather it’s a space to strengthen one’s sense of self. My goal as a Licensed Professional Counselor is to provide support through conversation and interventions that empower clients to live a healthy and fulfilling life.
Prior to becoming a mental health therapist, I was a High School Algebra teacher. In my time as an educator, I gained valuable experience working on a team to provide the best support for my students. My time in academics provided the foundation for my transition into mental health.
I currently work with clients aged 14-65 and have experience in the following areas: anxiety, OCD, depression, ADHD, trauma, grief and adjustment-related concerns. I utilize a range of treatment modalities based on client need and commonly utilize: CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, ERP, and ACT modalities.

I don't believe therapy treatments are a one-size-fits-all model. Every individual is different, and requires a unique, tailored approach. For some, that might involve traditional CBT. For others, a more person-centered approach. Maybe some combination of the two? I work with clients to see which treatments best fit them and their specific needs.
