Therapy is a safe place and it can be scary to ask for help. I believe therapy can help create personal growth and development. Finding the strength to take that first step to work through and overcome any obstacles that may be in your way is a big one. Let me help be your guide. Therapy is a team effort and you are not alone. I specialize in working with grief and trauma as well as anxiety and depression. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and children. Shannon Alder said, "Courage does not happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life."
Issues that I have experience with include anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, and behavioral issues. I offer a safe and comfortable environment to work through whatever it is you are facing in this world.
Reaching out for help is often difficult to do. You are not alone in your journey and you have a hand to help pull you back up on your feet.
