I wholeheartedly believe it’s my role as a therapist to assist you in realizing, cultivating, and accessing the internal and external resources that you already possess. I'm here to support you in healing, reconnecting and making empowering choices to achieve peace and feel more joy on a daily basis. Stress, conflict, and pain are given aspects of this life. Together, we will create a safe space for vulnerability and strength; both are needed for change. Our sessions will allow you to move through stuck points in your mind, relationships and environment. My approach is empathic, direct, emotionally supportive and solutions focused.

Are you uncertain about making the right choices for your child? Maybe you’ve been wondering what their future will look like if they’re constantly struggling now. Most parents feel as though they have a lack of information and understanding of why their child struggles and how to make it better. Watching your child suffer and feeling hopeless to know how to help is heartbreaking. A part of you knows that things should be better, but you’re seeing little progress and may even be dissatisfied with the current services your child has been offered.

Over the past 14-years I have had the privilege of working to help youth, families, and adults suffering from symptoms of anxiety, behavioral problems, depression, dissociation, grief, relationship problems, and trauma. All the clients I have worked with have several things in common: social, emotional, and/or behavioral problems that lead to an impairment in their ability to function and to suffering; a desire to reduce their experiences of suffering; the courage to share their personal stories in therapy; and a willingness to try something different.

As your Therapist I will listen, be supportive, and help you deal with the crisis, trauma, and stressors in your life. I provide a warm, inviting, safe, and non-judgmental space where you and your healing are my main focus.

I meet with people who experience pain associated with trauma events/PTSD, stress/anxiety, and depression, with a speciality in DBT skills and working holistically with "addictive" behaviors, defined as any behavior that one seems unable to stop no matter the efforts or consequences related to the behavior that increases pain and unwanted emotions.
​As a Licensed and Board-Certified counselor, and, more aptly, as a human Being, I understand pain in life. I also know that we humans have an amazing capacity to tolerate and be at ease in the tensions in life, no matter what arises, by un-learning the habits that get in the way. Utilizing evidenced-based practices with timeless principles of mind/body/spirit, I support individuals and couples with a warm-hearted Presence into the extraordinary process of embracing and responding to life from the Wisdom within us all.

I am eclectic in my approach; some evidence-based approaches I utilize are: mindfulness, cognitive/ dialectical behavioral therapies, acceptance commitment therapy, narrative therapy and trauma-informed treatment.
Everyone deserves the time and space to lay down their worries, their fears, their past, their pain—and especially their hopes for the future and the change they want to see in their lives. My job is to provide that time and space to my clients, listening attentively, non-judgmentally and empathetically. Once we’ve settled into that space, we can work together to identify your goals and work to achieve them. I am experienced in working with adults and teens with depression, anxiety, bipolar, PTSD and trauma, mood and thought disorders, substance use, grief, major life transitions and self-esteem. If you're ready, I'm here for you.

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
