In a world of constant motion, I understand the importance of stillness. I operate based on the knowledge that every human being has his/her/their own unique strengths and struggles. As such, I proudly utilize an eclectic approach to therapy in order to access the individualized needs of each client. I truly understand that the decision to pursue therapy can be a difficult process. It is my goal to provide a safe space for my clients so that they may bring out the best in themselves and subsequently reach their goals.
While I have worked with a variety of populations throughout my career, I specialize in working with children/adolescents, coping with trauma, addiction, anxiety, mood disorders, and difficult life transitions. In addition to a small private practice, I work as an outpatient therapist, clinical educator, and consultant.
