About

Have you, or your teenager, felt overwhelmed by anxiety? Are persistent feelings of sadness interfering with your ability to function at work, in school, or at home? Do you have difficulty getting sleep or do you feel nervous all of the time? Many of us are challenged by emotions that we have difficulty handling. In therapy, you can expect me to bring the best tools to meet your needs, building your coping skills, and improving your ability to manage those difficult emotions. If you experienced trauma in the past, I can help you understand the effects of that trauma on your life and help you function in your everyday life.
With special training in anxiety and trauma, and experience treating depression and other mental illnesses, you can expect me to suggest the tools that can best meet your needs, including task-centered model therapy, solution-focused therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), strength-based therapy, and mindfulness.
I look forward to meeting you! Working together, you can expect to build coping skills in a warm, compassionate, supportive, culturally-sensitive environment. Together, we will build a therapy program with empathy that draws on the tools most appropriate for you. We will work on actionable solutions to specific problems. Reach out today.
