In addition, I also have experience working with parents dealing with their own anxiety, depression, divorce, co- parenting or life transitions.
Therapy is a collaborative experience where I genuinely believe that my clients are the experts on their lives and personal experiences. My role is to help them become more self-aware, integrate both mind and body, and identify and implement their strengths on a daily basis. Throughout the therapy process, I help empower my clients so that they can create both emotional and behavioral changes that will help them lead a happier and more fulfilling life. The therapeutic techniques that I utilize in sessions include client-centered, mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

If you are struggling with feeling stuck, are overwhelmed by anxiety, OCD thoughts, and strong emotions, or have found yourself dreading situations that bring up fear and worry, therapy can help. Through development of coping skills and strategies you can get "unstuck" and begin to feel more like the person you want to be. Also, if you are experiencing a loss of satisfaction in your relationships, whether it be with your children, partner, co workers, or friends, therapy can be a place to develop communication strategies, form boundaries, practice parenting skills, and explore what makes a relationship safe.

There are phases in adult life that present challenges such as finding a career, relationships, starting a family, being a parent , work/life balance, and challenges that arise as one ages.
Beginning therapy is a positive step towards changing the way life is experienced. Someone may have challenges in relationships, may have experienced trauma, may not feel a sense of purpose, may feel sadness or fear. It is healing to be seen, heard and accepted and this is what I offer. I strive to create a therapeutic relationship built on trust and safety. Working with clients to explore thoughts, feelings and life experiences paves the way for healing, growth and a chance to live life more authentically. Self-compassion and vulnerability can lead to more connection with oneself and others while feeling less alone in the world.
