If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, substance use, trauma, or intimacy/ sexual dysfunctions, you are not alone. Often, we get stuck in patterns and vicious cycles of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that no longer serve us and chip away at our mental health functioning. Change and growth are uncomfortable; however, they are vital for self-growth. You will get the same results if you keep doing the same thing over and over again. I am here to empower you and deepen your self-trust to do things differently to gain different results.
I specialize in addiction, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and sexual dysfunctions, often resulting from maladaptive internal processes. I am gentle yet direct in my approach and collaborate with my clients. We may be a good fit if you are motivated and open to challenging your old patterns of thoughts and behaviors.
Therapy requires vulnerability and trust, which may be two areas you are struggling with or are apprehensive about providing to someone you’ve just met. I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental space to discover your needs and strengths. As a result, my clients often find me easy to connect with as I bring my authentic, human self into every session.

I will obtain your treatment history, including what has and has not been effective, so that we can be as efficient as possible. Then, based on your assessment, I will recommend cadence for therapy, which often begins once/a week with gradual titration to monthly sessions. I specialize in short-term care; however, clients can remain in treatment for additional support and maintenance of gains.

I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) in my practice. In our first session, we will complete a qualitative assessment. Then, based on your needs and goals for therapy, I will use MI to help increase internal motivation for change in conjunction with CBT to push back against the thoughts that keep you in a vicious cycle.
