About

I love to help individuals from all walks of life. I have a vast range of experience and feel as though I can help someone overcome obstacles, process life situations, acknowledge and heal from trauma, all while using an individual's strengths. I enjoy helping people to explore their strengths, understand where their strengths may stem from, and how they can be useful in their daily lives. I believe that there are no dead-ends, meaning when something does not work for someone, we try again until we find what does work. I like to help people understand their purpose and learn to make choices that best fit their needs.
I am experienced in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. I utilize strength-based approaches and implementing both motivational interviewing, as well as some DBT skills. I tailor interventions and therapeutic approach to the needs of the individual and/or family.
Talking with a therapist can be an amazing tool to find the best version of yourself. It is not a weakness to feel the need to do therapy, but instead and sign of strength and vulnerability. Please reach out with any questions you might have about therapy, myself, or the process. Taking the first step is the most important step!
