My therapy experience lends itself to treating adults and children with anxiety and mood disorders, including depression , OCD, PTSD, Panic Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
"I was drawn to the field of psychology by the immense possibilities that exist to effect change and to try to improve the quality of life of another. I am inspired by the resiliency of human beings and their ability to show courage despite extreme adversity. It is this that drives me and the opportunity to be an advocate for my clients is what motivates me most."

Throughout my time as a therapist, I have worked with adults and adolescents who have struggled to manage their day-to-day lives while dealing with trauma, depression , and anxiety.
There are times in our lives when we may feel overwhelmed or lost, leaving us feeling stuck or unsure of how to progress. Therapy often sounds daunting as it can carry stigma and judgement, and for that reason I strive to build a solid foundation built on trust and connections with clients.

I specialize in treating adolescents, adults, children and families coping with anxiety, depression , relationship issues, life transitions, self-esteem and trauma.
Life is about feeling connected, sharing in the joys and sorrows, and striving for something better, a better you. Therapy is a place where you can share and explore the challenges and achievements that make each of us an individual. I believe that forming a safe, non-judgmental relationship is fundamental to therapy and what guides the healing process. We work together in order to gain insight and learn healthy coping skills in managing challenges faced and the feelings associated with them. I believe that the most difficult job is working on ourselves but it is also the most rewarding.

These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

Our life experiences can lead us to question our identity and purpose in the world we live in. This can lead us to anxiety, depression , and trauma. Do you want to improve how you face challenges, function in your relationships, and face overwhelming feelings? I place heavy importance on addressing trauma. Trauma disintegrates the parts that make up your whole self, which can leave aspects of who you are hidden from your awareness. Left unaddressed, anxiety and depression can worsen, which can rob you of the necessary connection that all human beings need to thrive. I aim to help you process unresolved trauma.

I work with those struggling with relationship issues, anxiety, depression , boundary issues.
The therapeutic process is about becoming most fully ourselves. The more we come to know ourselves in an authentic and true way, the more fulfilling our lives and our relationships become. Change occurs when there is a new understanding, not just in our intellectual mind, but in our bodies and spirits as well. This kind of work, though difficult, and sometimes painful, is also deeply rewarding. It can also seem like a scary idea to some, not knowing if making lasting change is even possible.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
