"My counseling style is affirming, active, and collaborative--ideal for adults who experience anxiety, grief, adversity, unexpected changes, and who feel stuck and want support moving forward into authentic living & thriving. It can be challenging yet exhilarating to be vulnerable and step into the discomfort of our issues. Caring guidance and knowledgeable support can make all the difference in the world. It is time to clear what's holding you back...because you deserve freedom from emotional pain! NOTE: I'm currently working to become a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (applying neuroscience to panic/anxiety). "

"Psychological well-being requires growth, integration, & balance. When these are missing from our lives we end up in a cycle of conflict within ourselves and with others. We can start to experience anxiety, anger, depression, feelings of being overwhelmed, etc. My professional commitment as a therapist is to provide insight, compassionate support, and tools to help you navigate through difficult times. I have over a decade of experience helping adults, children, teenagers, & families create the lives that they want. As a former school social worker, I love to help children and teens find their strengths and overcome challenges."

As a genetically-determined brain disorder it is difficult to make progress working on OCD alone or without a consistent strategy. Having OCD myself I will be able to quickly understand the way your OCD works and develop a specially tailored plan to get your brain working better."
