I've worked with adults, as well as infants, children and teens.
Working through difficult times makes us, and our relationships, stronger. Making the decision to begin therapy isn't always easy, but sometimes it's just what you need to get your life back on track. Despite the stereotype of a therapist being someone who will, "tell you what to do," my role is to listen and help you toward hearing your own answers. It can offer you insight and perspective so you can achieve what you are striving for in your life. Together, we can explore what is getting in the way of you living a happier life.

Throughout my time as a therapist I have helped children , adolescents, adults and their families work through different life stressors such as trauma, anxiety, and depression. I do not approach therapy as a "one size fits all" treatment, as your goals are unique to you. My goal is to create a relationship and space where you feel comfortable and safe.

I have vast experience working with children , teens and families struggling with Parenting, Anxiety/Mood Disorders, Life Stressors, Self-Regulation, Stress, etc.
The power of your mind, held in your daily conscious and subconscious thoughts, is what I would like to help you discover. So many of us struggle with self-limiting beliefs that are embedded so deep into our core that the possibility of change is deemed inaccessable. I believe that we all view the world with our own unique lenses based on our life experiences. However, there is a world and a vision, often more positive, beyond the lens we choose for ourselves. Life is a choice everyday with the things that are in our control. And for the things that are out of our control, I will help you accept, tolerate, and cope with.

Whether it's a child and parents conjointly receiving treatment together, or a couple being seen together by one clinician and separately with their own clinicians, there are many benefits of collaborative therapy, which has a strong prognosis.
In 2020, I opened a private practice. I was blessed it grew to full capacity but dealt with sadness of turning people away due to no space. Frequently people shared their difficulties with finding therapy. I am tired of people and families, who are suffering emotionally not getting the help they need. So, I put together a group of several skilled clinicians. We operate by providing a therapy environment that is confidential and emotionally safe. We’re dedicated to making people feel comfortable and understood when discussing the most sensitive issues. Our goal is to ensure support that is empathetic and non-judgmental.

My experience is working with clients who are children , adolescents, adults, and families.
Our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs have the power to govern our behaviors. Those behaviors can subsequently cause us to create a positive, thriving, and healthy lifestyle. On the other hand having feelings of anger, hopelessness, and fear is also in our creative power. Sometimes we are faced with situations that we feel unprepared, overwhelmed, or ill-equipped to successfully handle. Through collaboration I'm here to help strengthen your healthy coping skills which will assist you with working through life advertises. The challenges we face and overcome can build resilience, healthy coping skills, and empowerment.

My specialties are working with adolescents and children , couples, and families.
I believe that we all struggle in our daily lives to make sense of things with every challenge that befalls us. Whether you are dealing with a long term issue, an immediate crisis, or anything in between, I want to reassure you that I provide a very comfortable and supportive environment by which you and I can work together to help you overcome whatever challenges you are facing. To me, the most important part of therapy is making a connection with the client and what I believe makes me different from other therapists is my ability to form that connection.
