About

Welcome. Unfortunately, we are not often taught how to process emotions healthily, nor are we given the skills to help facilitate this. My unique approach includes cognitive-behavioral therapy and providing actionable skills that clients can use right away. Paired with my strength-based expertise in working with teens and adults, I feel I have a unique approach that helps clients identify and build on their strengths, clarify their purpose if so desired, and then work to build a skill set that allows them to handle challenges that come their way. Thus, allowing for reduced stress, improved relationships, and a more fulfilled life.
Because everyone experiences stress, grief, anxiety, depression, and mental health concerns in their own way, I tailor my approach to each client. I provide a non-judgemental, safe space for my clients to be heard, seen, and understood. I find great fulfillment in working collaboratively with my clients as they achieve their desired goals.
Please reach out if you think I may be a good fit for you or a loved one. I will be happy to do a free consultation for you to see.
