Anxiety and OCD can be overwhelming and create barriers to how you live your life. Through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and exposure based treatment (ERP), we will work together help you to face those fears and reduce the behaviors that are getting in the way of your life. Treatment is structured, incremental, and results-oriented, which helps to facilitate practice and observe progress more quickly, so you can live your most fulfilling life.
Is anxiety spreading to different parts of your life, making your world feel smaller and smaller? Do you experience a dark emptiness inside that makes you think you have nothing to contribute? Do you wish you had more motivation to live the life you want? Reaching out for help can seem scary; however, feel proud of yourself and know that asking for help is a sign of strength. Going to counseling can be thought of as giving your mind the gift of health. Connecting with your counselor is the best predictor of success. My style is down-to-earth, easy to talk to, with a touch of humor. I will always have your best interests in mind.
I enjoy working with motivated clients ages 14 and older, including teens, college students, and adults. Many of my clients come to me with issues like anxiety, depression, stress, ADHD, life transitions, and burnout, all of which impact our daily lives and ability to reach our goals. For those seeking art therapy services, I provide a creative space and supplies to work through your emotions with art. I offer both telehealth and in-person services.
Do you find yourself wondering if anyone really understands what you are going through? Are you experiencing overwhelming emotion, but struggle to find the right words to explain these feelings? I want to hear your story and help you on the path towards healing. As a counselor I provide a non-judgmental, safe and caring place for you. In addition to traditional counseling, I am also an art therapist. Art therapy can be beneficial when words fail to help us express ourselves. We will use the process of creation to come to new insights about difficult situations and emotions. I can support you on your journey of personal growth.
Something feels off. You can’t quite put your finger on it; but some “shit” feels weird. You don’t feel like you can trust people so you isolate yourself from others because being fake feels phony to you. You are tired of fighting; but you can’t give up because there is a constant thought in your head “Who is going to take care of my child(ren)?” Nobody. So, you shake it off and keep pretending like everything is fine.

Many of the people that come to see me have in someway either lost their way in life and are tired of settling for the crumbs. Some come because of their lives have become out of balance and in some cases out of control in the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual areas. Others, because they are in a tremendous amount of emotional pain. My goal is to help you find a healthy way of dealing with whatever the issues, in effective ways, that are keeping you from reaching your highest potential and to heal the obvious and not so obvious wounds that might be preventing that from happening.
My approach is strengths based, focused on solutions, and present and forward directed. We will explore new possibilities and opportunities to learn how to lessen your current clinical symptoms, while improving your sense of self-acceptance, increasing your resiliency, and developing a healthier and more effective behavioral pattern moving forward. Together, we will collaborate on aligning your treatment goals with your own personal values within a warm, empathic, and compassionate space.
Do you sometimes feel like you’re disconnected, or feel like you don’t belong? Are you finding yourself overwhelmed by feelings of anxiety?

PROVIDING VIRTUAL THERAPY Your situation does not have to be your conclusion. No matter what’s going on in your life right now, you always get to decide your best way forward. Life can become very challenging at times and we find ourselves faced with difficult circumstances. Although these circumstances exist, we don’t have to let them define us or determine our destiny. So while we don’t always get to decide what happens to us, we do get to decide how we respond.

There comes a time when we realize that friends and family can't be our only outlet. Sometimes they rush to "fix us" or don't fully understand. Some of us don't have any support at all. We ultimately find that what we need is a neutral person with whom we can unload our burdens, free from judgement and critique. We need strategies to help us cope with difficult feelings and heal from the past. We find that once we begin this important work, we've created a path toward self acceptance, balance and empowerment.

As humans, we all face an array of challenges, experience pain and suffering, and sometimes, find ourselves feeling alone in the dark, helpless and hopeless.

I am invested in and unafraid to provide the deep connection and nonjudgmental space essential to think, feel, and work through any fears and challenges appearing in the way of achieving your goals.
