About

Are you feeling overwhelmed, angry, helpless, hopeless, anxious, depressed or struggling to identify how you are feeling? I am here to provide you with the support, tools and encouragement you need to achieve optimum mental health. We will work side by side to develop a treatment plan that works best for you and your level of functioning. Over the next several months we will work at identifying triggers for feelings/behaviors, identifying more effective coping skills, identifying positive supports, unpacking any past trauma that may have a direct effect on your mental health. The goal is to improve your confidence and self image.
I hope to provide the best support and assistance with problem solving around issues that may have my clients feeling helpless or hopeless. I utilized CBT, Motivational Interviewing, DBT and Existential Therapy to guide sessions. I specialize in working with individuals with Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Depressive Disorders and Trauma.
If you find yourself struggling, it is never too late to receive the help you deserve and start building a life worth living. It is normal to feel afraid of change as often times we get stuck and believe that this is how things have to be. I am here to encourage you to reach out so that you can take the first step in making a positive change.
