Teenagers are at a pivotal and complex stage in their lives. There are ever changing social dynamics, stress from school, new found family tension, and the introduction to existential questioning. I focus on strengthening self image, communication skills, and emotional stability. Everybody has a unique and complex story to tell and my goal is to help create a safe, open, and therapeutic environment to explore their inherent strengths and personal struggles. Together we will utilize established techniques to support growth, increase productivity in school, fortify family relationships, and foster healthy friendships.

***I am currently accepting new clients via teletherapy due to the Covid-19 Pandemic***My clinical work is mostly informed by Attachment Theory and I currently work primarily with individuals ranging from teenagers to seniors. As human beings, we are meant to seek connection with others. Connection with a compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable therapist is one of the best ways to develop a more secure sense of attachment to the world around you. This connection can lead to the positive, long-term change you are seeking.

With specialties in addiction and dual diagnosis; including depression, anxiety and trauma history, I take an integrated, holistic approach to care. The therapeutic relationship is one in which optimum healing is, as a result of the reciprocal bond, between the therapist and the client. One can only be open to the experience of change and improvement in their life if they feel safe. This is the therapy space that I provide in order to help shape authentic, loving and accurate self-awareness. I provide nurturance, guidance, affirmation and compassionate reflection in order to help clients feel grounded in their own decision-making.

I believe that each of us has the capacity to heal from our experiences, no matter how difficult, painful, or traumatic. Though the circumstances that cause our pain may be shared, the journey of healing is an entirely unique and personal one. My goals are to help you define your journey and provide a landscape where you feel seen, heard, and above all else, safe along the way. Whether still setting your course, or well into your journey, therapy can be deeply rewarding.

The approach I take as a therapist draws from both cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices. In short, people learn how to relate to their thoughts differently and as a result additionally gain insight, problem solving skills, communication skills, increased sense of control over feeling states and improved relationships. Through processes such as examination of your perceptions and beliefs, increasing your ability to be present in the here and now, exploration of your values, development of new skills and resolution of previous trauma, I've had the privilege of witnessing my clients experience symptom reduction and profound change.

Being a human is challenging. Being a human with ADHD adds extra challenges. It's easy to give up on goals, feel scattered, and that you just can't seem to tap into your potential. The good news is- some of the most common ADHD traits are resilience, persistence, and creative/outside of the box problem solving. My work focuses on helping clients better educate, empower, and embrace their understanding of their ADHD and themselves. With my approach as a therapist/coach- it is incredible how much more consistently you will begin to feel like your best self. My work is grounded in my own lived experiences as a fellow ADHD human!

Often times there are aspects of ourselves that we ignore, or push away to avoid experiencing pain or emotions that can feel unbearable. Pushing away parts of ourselves has an impact on our ability to connect with who we are as a whole person. My approach in therapy involves looking at all of these parts within our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual zones and examine the way they interact with one another. I work in partnership with my clients to help them discover; their path, what's important to them, and find their truest self.
