Anxiety and depression impact your work, relationships, and personal goals. But with support, it is completely possible to feel better and manage these often-debilitating symptoms. I specialize in assisting adults with anxiety/depression to manage their symptoms and reduce the impact they have on their lives. This includes women who suffer from cyclical anxiety, depression, or anger in relation to their menstrual cycles (aka PMS/PMDD.)

While I’ve been working in mental health and social services for quite some time, I believe you’re the expert on your own life – your fears, hopes, and desires. It may not feel that way because life can be overwhelming. My goal is to help you become more aware of and responsive to your emotions and relationships. I’ll help you to embrace your authentic self by becoming more comfortable and confidant with where you’re at in life and who you are or want to be. As a generalist and a pluralist clinician, I adapt my approach to your unique needs and experiences. As a pragmatist, I want our work together to be productive and practical.

We all need a little help from time to time. Especially now, when life throws us a curveball and we need help processing things like loss, anxiety, life transitions, heartache, and depression. Going it alone is possible, but whew, it’s not easy. I'm a mental health professional and have “just sucked it up” several times in my life. When I slogged it out on my own there were bouts of prolonged frustration, sadness, loss, and confusion. When I did finally “get it together already” and saw a therapist, I felt clearer, more like myself and had a sense of hope that it would get better and it usually did.

*Accepting new clients* I know that every person who comes to therapy is unique, which is why I individually tailor my work with clients to be as supportive as possible. I understand the importance of incorporating an intersectional mindset when it comes to treating individuals from systemically marginalized groups. Every individual experiences the world around them differently, and I want to help each person be able to understand and interact with that world as effectively and passionately as possible.
