About

Finding the right therapist can be challenging. I am not what some consider a traditional therapist who continuously asks "how does that make you feel". My approach to conducting therapy is modern and effective. This approach has helped many overcome obstacles and improve their overall quality of life. I believe that every person deserves to be genuinely happy. I am here to provide you with the support & skills you need to manage uncomfortable and unwanted mental health symptoms. My main objective is for each one of my clients to grow into the best version of themselves.
My goal is to ensure you do not go through your challenges alone. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Solution-Focused Therapy to help you navigate through life’s challenges. I am here to help you be the absolute best version of yourself.
No one has to go through life's obstacles alone. Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to speaking with you.
