About

I specialize in working with college-aged and young adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, life transitions, social anxiety, family/relationship conflict, and low self-esteem. I have such a heart for working with clients of this age range. I remember that time in my own life as being one that was full of growth. I was blessed to have had pivotal people in my life who helped me learn ways to navigate life during such a volatile time and encouraged me to become who I am today. Because I had this blessing, I have always wanted to be able to pay it forward and offer the same help and guidance that I received at that age.
I also work with couples to provide marriage counseling and relationship counseling, as well as family counseling. My primary approaches are rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), and Internal Family Systems Theory (IFS).
My approach to therapy is strengths-based and solution-focused. I believe that you are the author of your own story, and I love to empower my clients to take control of their anxiety, depression, or other symptoms that are holding them back from living the life that they want. Let's start writing your next chapter!
