Are you unsure about how to solve a problem? Feeling anxious or depressed? Hate yourself? Do the same problems keep reoccurring? Are you struggling with a transition? Do you have concerns about your relationships and struggle to express your needs with partners, friends, or family members? Struggling with a part of your identity? Are you having difficulty sleeping? Do you have no appetite or find yourself overeating? Feeling tired, lacking concentration, and having difficulty motivating yourself? IF SO, I can help you. Therapy will ignite change in your life, and I look forward to supporting you in seeking that change.

I provide quality treatment to clients. If I work with you, I will work to make you feel safe and cared for, focus on what you are motivated to do, and utilize practical approaches that will focus on emphasizing your strengths, empowering you, increasing your insight, and teaching you skills.

Theoretical approaches that I utilize include Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy, Mindfulness, Exposure Therapy, and Feminist Therapy. I specialize in treating young adults/college students, men, LGBTQ individuals, and people with disabilities. Feel free to peruse my website for more information.
