Stress is apart of our daily lives, but what do you do when it gets to be too much? Professional therapy is one way to work through stress and other mental health struggles. I provide the insight and support needed to manage life problems in a more productive way.

I work with clients of all faiths and backgrounds to address issues including depression, anxiety, stress, relationship problems, child behavior problems, trauma, abuse, and more.

I specialize in treating individuals and families, with a focus on observing the patterns among family members and helping each member to make changes in how they relate to one another.
