Experience in working with many issues including PTSD, anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, OCD , personality disorders, substance abuse, separation issues, adoption and issues related to abuse and neglect.
Our experiences in life can present us with challenges, stress, depression, anxiety and emotional turmoil in the here and now. Everyone can benefit from emotional support to help navigate the difficulties of life, especially when our own coping and problem skills don't seem to manage what we are experiencing. Initiating therapy is the start of building our coping skills in navigating through the course of life and achieving our goals. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is critical in a non-judgmental and safe setting. I want to help you achieve your goals and reach your full potential.

I am a licensed clinical professional counselor who specializes in working with individuals struggling with eating disorders, OCD , PTSD, anxiety disorders, and depression. While I tailor my specific approach to each individual client, I primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and exposure and response prevention (ERP). For the treatment of depression, I also use behavioral activation to help clients decrease avoidance in their lives and begin to engage in activities that will help improve their mood.

The artist Coldplay once said: "Everybody knows I'm in over my head." Many of us can relate to that sense. We often feel "in over our heads." We feel stuck, overwhelmed, or confused. However deeply you might relate to this, I believe that living life with your head above the water is possible. I believe that together in counseling, we can discover the path out of anxiety, obsessive thoughts, depression, grief, shame, relational conflict, and other barriers to greater wholeness and connection. As a counselor, one of my greatest passions in life is to see people flourish and live life more lightly and fully.

Our clients present with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, disordered eating, body image, OCD , relationship challenges, and navigating life transitions .
Life is full of “shoulds.” Family, friends, and society often have a very clear idea of the path we’re supposed to be on, but we believe that peace and empowerment lie in finding your own path- worrying less about the expectations of others and more about what you want your life to look like. Taking an alternative path or changing route along the way is difficult. Therapy can help as you strive to be true to yourself on the journey. We offer a space where individuals learn to utilize their personal strengths to live their most meaningful lives and develop fulfilling relationships.

My specialties include cancer, chronic illness, religious trauma, OCD and anxiety disorders, relationship concerns, and grief.
You already know the areas of your life that are holding you back, but you don't know where to start - which has led you here. Maybe anxiety is causing you to avoid the people, places, and activities you used to enjoy. Maybe work stress or chronic illness makes you disconnect from the things you value due to exhaustion and overwhelm. Maybe you and your romantic partner keep repeating the same fights over and over, no matter how hard you both try to change. You worry that things will never feel "normal" again. You'd like to be able to work through the anxiety and frustration these things cause, and start living your life again.
