Announcement icon I am currently providing therapy through video sessions (via doxy.me) or teletherapy sessions, which will transition to in-person when able.
Today's world can often feel pressure-filled, demanding, and overwhelming. And, you don't have to suffer. I am passionate about helping people regain a sense of control, empowerment, and joy in their lives. I have an empathetic and direct style. I use a strengths-focused approach and work with you to use and build upon your strengths to aid in your recovery. I aim to provide my clients with the tools and support necessary to help them create their own individualized path to healing. I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor, which allows me to specialize in treating substance and behavior addictions.
Using my training as a marriage and family therapist, I approach individual therapy from a systemic perspective by joining you in exploring the roots and patterns of your struggles. We will dig deep into your experiences and use evidence-based models, including the incorporation of mindfulness practices, to help you bring change to your life.
I have extensive experience working with adolescents and adults with mood and anxiety disorders, personality disorders, self-esteem struggles, substance use and eating disorders, and family conflicts. I believe the most effective therapy is a collaboration between therapist and client. I'm looking forward to collaborating with you!
