There are many reasons why someone chooses to explore therapy. Some want support navigating relationships at home, school, or work. Others are interested in gaining confidence in advocating for themselves and their identity. Some may be feeling stuck or want to talk through different options or choices. Others want to have a safe, nonjudgemental space to express themselves while feeling heard, understood, and accepted. Whatever your reason, I would love the opportunity to talk and see if we can discover some ways to help you feel grounded. I’m committed to honoring your unique experiences, hopes, values, expertise, and needs.

There are always times when bad situations can overwhelm a person, but the person always has the option to push the struggle to get to a place where they can find happiness. Making an actual effort toward improving life is something that can create happiness in and of itself. And here you are… You did it! You made the first step to your healing journey by taking time out of your day to look for your own therapy. I admire you.

Do you feel like you are “too sensitive for the world around you?” Are you fine one moment and then overwhelmed with emotions the next? Maybe you’re in a “good” relationship, but can’t stop wondering whether it’s right for you. It can feel scary and lonely when it seems like your life is going well on the surface, but underneath there is a different reality. Many of my clients live with trauma, anxiety, extreme stress levels, and depression. They manage to expertly float through life finding “success” while feeling empty and depleted. The good news is that the skills that have helped you come this far are already in place.

Your emotional health is vital in meeting your goals and finding satisfaction in life. I can help you with addiction/dual diagnosis concerns, depression, anxiety, general stress, and relationship challenges. I often work from a non 12-step approach with substance misuse to help understand what is driving the addiction, but also value the approach that feels right for you.

From the unexpected challenges to finding fulfillment when overcoming a trial, every person deserves to be the hero of their own story. From trauma to mood disorders to relational issues, each challenge is not an isolated event, but a story that is connected to our past, present, and future. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is passionate about helping people work through these challenges to come out even stronger, emotionally and mentally. I work with youth, adults, couples, and families to identify how this connection can lead to overcoming challenges and finding healing.

Life is full of unexpected turns and challenges, and you’ve been trying to push through the barriers on your own for a while now. You’ve sought out various ways to make yourself feel better temporarily, but haven’t found something that brings long-term relief. Sometimes, despite your great effort, those overwhelming feelings of loneliness, fear, and helplessness continue to persist. If you're struggling with emotional pain, you don't have to deal with it all alone. What you need may be a safe space where your difficult feelings can be worked through and your authentic self can be seen, understood, and accepted.

If you are considering therapy, I'd be glad to provide you with a free consultation over the phone. I believe that the relationship between the client and therapist plays a significant role in helping people overcome painful emotional experiences, destructive interpersonal patterns, and other obstacles that get in the way of us experiencing our lives from a place of openness and security. I work closely with clients to explore the role that their unique circumstances play in how they see themselves and others. My approach to treatment relies on non-judgment, compassion, and respect for all of my clients.

Battle scars, we all have some internally and externally. Some of the “scars” may be buried, suppressed, or repressed. We push it aside to get through our days until we realize our scars starts to slip into our daily lives and affect our relationships, careers, or academics. We see the scars as weakness however, the scars show ours strengths and resilience. I believe every person has the potential to heal and grow into who they want to become. The healing process starts with a safe and therapeutic environment.

I specialize in addiction/dual diagnosis, but treat various mental health problems as well (depression, anxiety, relationship problems, etc.). I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and a psychodynamic approach, but I alter treatment depending on your needs. Feeling stagnant as well as drug and alcohol concerns are often a result of deeper struggles such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, and obstacles in your daily life. If you are feeling stuck and are grappling with how to move forward I can help guide you through it. *Please say your name when prompted when you call, otherwise your call will not go through.*

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
