Are you feeling depressed, anxious or isolated? I work with youth, adults and families dealing with these and other stressors. As we all navigate the "new norm" of pandemic social distancing and distance learning, it may be more difficult pay attention to our mental health needs. It can be hard for us adults but, also has taken a toll on our families/children as they have little to no time to socialize or spend with their friends. There is so much uncertainty too. It is causing our families a lot of stress. Plus , the isolation from COVID-19 is causing depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts in youth.

*TELETHERAPY ONLY* I believe people continue to grow and foster their self-concept over time. Sudden life changes, chronic stress, and ongoing personal difficulties are challenging and affect how we adjust to life transitions. I see therapy as a process aiming to empower individuals to embrace their true self, foster self-awareness and personal growth. I aim to create a trusting environment for individuals and couples to explore recurrent patterns in relationships and cope with distressing emotions. I work with trauma survivors, first responders, law enforcement, and military families. I also specialize in couples counseling.
