Life can be overwhelming. It can feel like you’re slowly sinking into an ocean of worries and despair. You just want to catch your breath. It can keep you awake at night, or make you not want to get out of bed. I’m here to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship so you can find relief from your struggles.
I offer a variety of evidence-based tools to help you through your problems, tools that will help curb the negative thinking that causes depression, anxiety, and insomnia. I’m trained in trauma-informed care, and more. I also work with couples, employing the Gottman method which helps strengthen romantic bonds and communication skills.
Therapy may seem like an uncertain proposition, but I promise you that you are capable of change and healing. By contacting me, you’ll have already gotten past the most daunting step of the process.

The modality I use depends on the issue. For depression and anxiety, I prefer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. For trauma, I opt for EMDR and or Narrative Therapy. For couples, I follow the Gottman method and incorporate some EFT techniques. The amount of structure I use with any modality depends on the needs of the client.
