I have worked with a variety of clients, diagnoses, and life circumstances. I primarily see adults that cope with anxiety and depression, difficult transitions as well as problems within their interpersonal/romantic relationships. I find the work to be very rewarding and make every effort to join with each client as we work to understand how their past and present experiences contribute to their current situations. I believe that we live out cycles/patterns that begin early in our life and manifest over the course of our adulthood. It is important to explore and understand them to make changes.

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.

I work with clients who want to be happier and less anxious, who want to improve their performance, and who want to interact positively in important relationships. Working together, we identify and increase patterns of behavior and ways of thinking that are most productive, eliminating unhealthy behaviors. I also share tools for growth, updating my clients about research findings pertinent to their concerns. Solution-oriented therapy allows clients to set and achieve their goals, becoming happier and more optimistic in the process.

*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.
