In my own personal life, I have experienced the loss of my parents and faced cancer twice.
I look forward to working with individuals that are experiencing anxiety, depression, grief and re-balancing their life. There comes a time in all of our lives where we need the compassion and support of a therapist that truly is present and cares. I will offer you a safe space to process and work through your challenges. Life is but a journey and it is meant for us to enjoy our lives. Yes, there will be some challenges, but we can get through the challenges when we have the tools and a support system to help us along our path.

Assessment and individual therapy is also offered to cancer patients and their family members experiencing anxiety and depression related to cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship that impact quality of life.
The human experience of anxiety is normal and adaptive. We would not be adequately prepared for important challenges in life if we did not experience some anxiety and fear. Anxiety is not longer adaptive when it overpowers the person and creates obstacles and challenges that interfere with daily life. At this point, a diagnosable condition may have developed. I provide specialized treatment for adults with the various anxiety disorders, including social anxiety disorder (social phobia), generalized anxiety disorder, panic, specific phobias, and obsessive compulsive disorder. I also treat conditions that commonly occur with anxiety disorders like depression or sleep disturbance.

Your relationship is unraveling before you. You never imagined things could get this bad or that you would ever deal with such painful issues. You’re feeling invalidated, misunderstood, confused, hurt, and angry on a regular basis. All you want is to be happy again. You find yourself doubting the relationship and yourself on a regular basis. You've even considered what it would be like if you weren't together anymore. Other times you want to do everything you can to fix the problems but your efforts just aren't getting you the long term results you want. Your head is constantly spinning. Things were supposed to be different.

Do you feel like you think differently from others In a way that no one around you understands? Do you find that your passions and interests are not acknowledged as important by those close to you? Being told that you have to become a different person by those around you can be painful and traumatic. It can lead to anxiety, self-doubt, depression, and struggling with identity. This can be true for individuals who are neurodivergent, LGBTQIA+, and multicultural families. So by having a space to express and explore who you are can be therapeutic.

“Before you assist others, put your oxygen mask on first.” I strongly believe that as individuals we need to prioritize our well-being to live a full and rewarding life. Self-care and self-love are two incredibly important concepts, and starting the journey to both of them through therapy is a wonderful beginning. It is a journey that I would love to take on with you. Beginnings are never easy, but I will be here to support and guide you, and hopefully make this as easy and rewarding of a process as it can be.

As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.

My ideal patient is someone who may be struggling to find relief with just psychotherapy and/or psychotropic medications alone. This is a person who feels stuck and wants to seek alternative approaches towards improving their mental health. From children to elderly patients, neurofeedback is a modality that can benefit almost anyone with a wide array of presenting conditions. If your goal is to improve your cognitive functioning and flexibility and to not feel "stuck" anymore, then consider neurofeedback as a treatment option for you.

I welcome you to my practice site. If you are here at this site I make the assumption that you are secure enough to know that you deserve to feel better and have good relationships. With a comfortable match up of therapist and client, both of us work towards understanding the challenges you face, getting some clarity about what can be changed, and learning how to take action. Getting comfortable involves feeling listened to and understood by me and developing trust that I will be knowledgeable about your subject and I will be supportive and non judgmental in this therapeutic relationship.

Do you struggle with managing self esteem? Do you find it difficult to identify your emotions or how to manage them? Do you hold back from communicating your desires, wants and needs? I enjoy working with teens (+14 years), young adults, and families during difficult and sensitive seasons in life. Using client-centered cognitive behavioral therapy, clients will gain skills in identifying and communicating anxious and intrusive thoughts, life stressors, and unhelpful patterns and behaviors. My goal is to assist and support clients to live their best life. Telehealth Only
