Are you struggling with anxiety or depression? Or perhaps, you’re struggling with both. You experience excessive worry & thought traps that you can’t seem to get out of. You ruminate about issues from the past, present, & worry about all the future “what if’s.” You feel mentally & emotionally exhausted. Your heart races, you’re restless, you have trouble concentrating, & panic attacks creep in without warning. It’s a real pain the butt, just like depression! When you’re feeling depressed, doing basic things can be really, really hard. The low self-esteem, lack of motivation & bully in your head are crippling. It's exhausting...

My commitment to my clients is to provide them with a welcoming place in which they can safely share their struggles and receive genuine support. People generally don't seek help from a therapist until they reach the point where their typical coping skills are no longer working. If you are at that point and need help discovering new methods to help you make it through life's challenges, I can help.

In my work, I listen to what the client speaks verbally and through his or her body. I pay special attention to client's unspoken words. Through empathic attunement with the client, I become aware of what he or she is experiencing in the therapeutic process, as well as in his or her past. I am also impacted by client's painful experiences and resonate with his or her feeling states. Through becoming a witness to client's painful past, the client can become free of his or her earlier experiences and can feel joy and pleasure of living, being alive, loving, and being loved.

I work from a holistic and strength-based perspective in therapy. While therapy and traditional counseling tend to focus on pathology and deficits, I tend to focus on working with individual's already existing strengths to help them move beyond any concerns they may have. In addition, I conduct psychological, legal-medical, and forensic evaluations in my practice. I also contract with Workers Compensation to meet clients needs.
