***NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS*** As a licensed psychotherapist, my role is to guide you as you take steps toward positive life changes, healing, and a healthy mind. I see my work as helping you gain an understanding of yourself and your past, and to identify self-defeating patterns in your life, so you have a choice in changing them. I will help you learn and practice evidence-based skills to begin creating a new, more satisfying life. Whether this is based in individual work or family work, I use a warm but direct approach to quickly address the issues you and I identify collaboratively.

I enjoy working with people who are reluctant about or new to the therapeutic process. My clients would tell you that I am very laid-back, non-judgmental, and authentic. I welcome humor and enjoy working with people to shift their perspectives when things get rough. I am passionate about self-discovery, empowerment, and personal growth. I view anxiety, depression, and addiction as maladaptive coping skills that can offer insight and serve as a catalyst for positive change.

**Full as of 2/7/2022** Living in a society that prioritizes physical health over mental well-being, we are often led to believe that our psychological health doesn’t matter. We are taught very early on that when things get hard and difficult emotions bubble up, we need to suck it up, put on a smile, and move on. This stigma leaves many of us without space to process the complex struggles we encounter throughout our lives. Therapy creates that space. No concern is too big or too small to work through in session together. Your life and your struggles matter.

NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. I believe that one primary role as a therapist is to hold on to hope when you believe there is no hope and to help people find strength and courage in times of vulnerability. When someone considers working with a therapist often it is because they have begun to feel lost, or alone, or confused. Or when facing hard things like divorce, death of a loved one, addiction, trouble at work, difficulty sleeping and constant worry. Life is hard. You don’t have to walk it alone. Contact me - I am willing to walk with you.

Borderline Personality Therapists

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior. This instability often disrupts family and work life, long-term planning, and an individual's sense of identity.
