Assisted clients with phase of life stressors,depression, anxiety disorders, grief / loss , trauma, and various others.
My approach to therapy is empathic, strength-based and interactive. I believe that a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship while empowering the client is imperative for change. I have been providing therapy since 2000 for adults, couples, and children. My main approach to therapy is to utilize cognitive behavioral theory (CBT) in order to process thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that contribute to distorted thinking and behavior, therefore affecting emotional well-being. The goal is to challenge and reframe so that the client achieves their personal goals, to cope with life transitions and obstacles, and improve mental health

I use a collaborative and client centered approach to treat issues such as grief , loss , anxiety, depression, PTSD, substance use/abuse and it's affect on the family, infidelity, intimacy and post divorce issues.
It can be tough to feel seen, heard and understood. Even day-to-day life experiences can be painful if you're feeling alone and vulnerable and the idea of starting or restarting therapy and finding the right fit can be intimidating. You may worry that you wont find a therapist who takes time to understand you and what you're going through without judgement.

Being human is weird. There is no magic coping skill that can alleviate the roller coaster of the human experience. I believe that as humans we are not defined by our challenges. I have experience supporting clients working through concerns related to anxiety, depression, grief , burnout, relational challenges, adult family dynamics, work life balance, trauma, and rebuilding life post brain injury and stroke. I enjoy working with other health professionals on their own healing journeys. I also enjoy working with "overachievers" and "people pleasers" who are experimenting with writing a story beyond their resume.
