According to my mother, my first word was "why." Why is the sky blue? Why can't I have a cookie for breakfast? Why are people hurting? This curiosity is integral to my work as a therapist, as I strive to understand my client's worldview and the problems they are facing. Whether you are reliving past trauma, plagued by worrisome thoughts, concerned about your relationship or substance use, or feeling generally dissatisfied in life, I will provide an empathic ear, support, and guidance to help you meet these challenges and make the life changes you desire.

I don't have an ideal client as I believe everyone is unique and I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are invested in changing patterns and moving into the future with a more positive outlook on themselves and how they impact others. I like to challenge and offer alternatives while also listening to what has worked and build on the positives.

Waitlist for new clients
Every individual and couple who has ever sought my services worked diligently to navigate life as best as they can until they reached an impasse. They feel depleted, frustrated, confused, unfulfilled. Stuck. This is human, and I view those seeking my services as individuals, not diagnoses. Therapy is at its core, conversational. As such, my primary aim is to create a setting in which it is as comfortable as possible to explore the most sensitive areas of your life. Some of the primary issues I treat are depression, work stress, anxiety, substance use, trauma, life transition.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me! My ideal clients are looking for a strength-based approach where they are more than a "psychiatric diagnosis." My clients come from many backgrounds - they are children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families - and are dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, women’s issues, anger management, ADHD, autistic spectrum disorder, addiction issues, couples therapy, and working through LGBTQ+ issues. I partner with my clients in the change process and empower them through using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and other tailored approaches.

Times are tough. Overwhelmed by thinking in circles, catastrophizing and doubting yourself, the fog of fear has surrounded you. "What-ifs" can make it feel a carefree life is impossible; stuck between where you’ve been and where you want to be. Feeling demoralized and discouraged, the worry has taken too much and it's time to turn things around, once and for all!

Therapy is a space where we are invited to be present with all of ourselves, including the parts we don’t want to see. I believe the relationship between client and therapist is where the power of healing lies. I show up with warmth, humor, authenticity and complete acceptance and non-judgment. Together we will create an environment where it feels safe to put words to what had previously seemed impossible to say out loud.
