My patients are usually hard working adults who have run into some tough times or are experiencing difficult emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and addictions. I focus on using a strengths-based and harm reduction approach, which views each person as an individual with unique strengths and challenges. Using this approach values the person and facilitates a customized treatment plan for the individual. My role is not to judge you or your behaviors, but to act as an independent consultant for improving your mental well-being and quality of life.

It has been my experience that evidence-based approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Supportive Psychotherapy, and Motivational Interviewing produces successful results. In our work together, we uncover the negative thoughts, beliefs and behaviors that weigh you down and keep you feeling stuck.

I know how challenging it can be to reach out and ask for help, but we all need it at times. Entering therapy can be the first step in a process of gaining better understanding of yourself and the thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that may be preventing you from living the life that you want to live. My work is tailored to you, your life and your needs.
