Announcement icon Hello! I will only be offering teletherapy sessions for Ct clients!
Are you are struggling with anxiety, mood issues, a major life transition, strong emotions, relational difficulties, etc.? You don't have to go through it alone, whatever your reason, let's work together to to make things feel better. Yes, it may be difficult but you can do it with support. I have over a decade of experience helping individuals navigate through challenges that feel overwhelming, using a combination of evidence-based and solution-focused models, including CBT, DBT, and motivational interviewing. I look forward to hearing from you!
I operate from a person-centered approach, meeting you where you're currently at. My style is energetic, positive, active, and engaged. My goal is to make my clients feel comfortable and empowered from the moment they step in the door. I will help you understand your patterns and help you learn skills to make positive changes.
Taking the first step to reach out to a qualified mental health professional can feel scary but people seek out therapy for a variety of reasons. Whatever your reason, I promise to make this journey as easy as comfortable as possible while still challenging you to better yourself.
