Depression, anxiety, or grief doesn't go away on its own. Isn't that why you are here? I warmly welcome people struggling with emotional and relationship issues. I promise to listen and to hear you. Our positive relationship---therapist/client---is essential in resolving your mental health concerns. I believe, if you feel comfortable & safe with your therapist, you will be hopeful & ready for change. My office is a safe, private, and non-judgmental space. A huge positive benefit of a small office is that I will provide a completely individualized treatment plan; focused just on you and your unique strengths--you won't be lost in a large impersonal healthcare system when you see me.

Areas of Mental Health Specialities: depression, anxiety, self-harm, mood disorders, life changes, trauma and PTSD. Hospice and Aging populations: grief, loss, medical changes, caregiver stress, physical decline and dementia. Military/Family: PTSD, moves, PCS's, family stresses and challenges. Bariatric/Weight Loss Surgery: support, evaulations, pre/post; emotional eating, triggers, food modifications. I use Trauma Informed Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Grief Counseling, and Family Systems Therapy.

My style is warm, attentive, and caring, I use a person-centered approach and will draw on your personal strengths to create a care plan to address your unique mental health needs. Together, let's make a difference in your life, as we begin to understand what is holding YOU back from living the life you want to live. Take that first step toward finding a quieter mind. Call for an appointment today. You are ready.
