About

Congratulations on taking the first step to building a better life. As a Licensed Therapist, I compassionately counsel adults, teens, and families and help them lead a more engaged and meaningful life. I work with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, behavioral concerns, life transitions and productivity issues. Utilizing a very collaborative and interactive style, I empower my clients to uncover their authenticity while building new strengths and skills. I can help you make space in your life for more enjoyment, productivity and meaning.
I have specialized training and experience teaching Mindfulness Stress Reduction Skills, and I utilize Internal Family Systems and Dialectical Behavior therapeutic interventions. Using a very positive and non judgmental approach, I offer both short and longer term counseling, to foster resiliency and recovery.
In addition, I have a Masters Degree in Pastoral Counseling for clients interested in incorporating spirituality into their treatment.
