I have worked with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, bipolar , schizophrenia and trauma.
I am a passionate therapist seeking to walk alongside my client's through providing empathy and a safe space. I became motivated to become a therapist due to my own family traumas and addictions. While navigating through life I recognized the need for a safe person to listen, validate when appropriate, challenge and motivate to get through trying times. This is the person I want to be for my clients.

I specialize in working with adults and teens with anxiety, depression, bipolar , schizophrenia, substance abuse, PTSD, complex/developmental trauma, grief, chronic pain, health and relationship problems.
I strongly believe that therapy should be a safe place where anyone can come and talk about their life without judgment or shame. It is a place where everyone can benefit from unconditional empathy, understanding, and grace. I am an outgoing person who is easy to talk to, and I do my best to make the therapeutic process as smooth and understandable as possible. We will go at your pace and create a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs and goals. I strive to help you become self sustaining where you can gain a sense of understanding of what skills you need, why you are utilizing them, and when to utilize the skills learned.

My focus as a psychotherapist is to help each individual achieve their full potential. Whether there is a current challenge or a broader goal to create change, the biggest indicator of success in therapy is the rapport one has with their therapist. I provide a safe environment in my office, one of support, honesty, trust and free of judgment. This is essential to the therapeutic process and in the client's ability to feel safe and understood. I assist and help guide my clients in life transformations, to gain insight and to live a better, more meaningful life.

As indulgent as the expression of self-care sounds it is an important concept towards healing and well-being. When we are overwhelmed, self-care is usually the first thing we let go. Making an appoint with a therapist is a huge step towards loving and caring of oneself. Finding the "right" therapist for some can be an overwhelming journey in itself. A strong relationship with your therapist is the key ingredient towards effective psycho-therapy. Therefore, it is vital to search for a therapist that can hold a space of comfort and trust.

Women suffering with trauma -There you are once again, holding back the tears and acting like everything is okay. Deep down you're wishing someone would see that you’re not. Maybe if people knew what you’ve been through, they’d stop telling you to just think positive. Perhaps you don’t even realize that you have been traumatized. You just know you need help because the anxiety is overwhelming and you’re tired of fighting hopeless thinking and depression all the time. I am here so you don’t have to feel helpless under the weight of these emotions.

My clients are usually hard workers, and are very self critical. They expect so much out of themselves, and don't feel like they are ever enough. People pleasers that are frustrated they can't please everyone, are often tired and frustrated with where life is going compared to where they wish it was. They often have relationships that could be better, whether starting, maintaining, or ending. They are tired of struggling, they are ready to make a change, to be part of the solution. They want to have better control of their anxiety, emotions, anger, and also learn to be in the moment. I can help you get to where you want to be.

Toady's busy lifestyles confront us with many personal/professional challenges. Assuming multiple roles can impact our ability to meet the responsibilities of our daily lives. Financial stress, work/school responsibilities, relationship struggles and parenting problems can cause depression, anxiety, health concerns, anger, or alienation. Without an adequate support system, life stresses often seem insurmountable; the high cost of health care often discourages individuals from seeking outside help. I recogize the increasing need for affordable, competent, compassionate mental health care services. I believe in the healing process of psychotherapy, and offer flexible fees for those commited to doing the work.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists
The defining feature of bipolar disorder is mania. It can be the triggering episode of the disorder, followed by a depressive episode, or it can first manifest after years of depressive episodes. The switch between mania and depression can be abrupt, and moods can oscillate rapidly. But while an episode of mania is what distinguishes bipolar disorder from depression, a person may spend far more time in a depressed state than in a manic or hypomanic one.
