Simply acknowledging that you may need assistance in your journey can be a very difficult step. Sometimes we carry the weight of our past, sometimes we face unexpected struggles or are feeling stuck, knowing that something needs to change. Whatever your reasons may be, you are here, searching for an answer or a solution. I work with individuals 16 and older. My areas of focus include the LGBTQIA+ Community, substance use and recovery, trauma, anxiety, depression, excessive anger, PTSD as well as various issues that stem from transitional stages in a person's life.

My ideal Client presents to a session with the presence of excessive anxiety and worry about a variety of topics and reports an increase in these symptoms since the recent passing of their mother. The Client would report excessive worrying most of their life about situations that have occurred since childhood, but suppressed them until they came to a boiling point triggered by this present grief. The Client reports her worry to be experienced as very challenging to control at times and is usually accompanied by depression and feelings of hopelessness.

Studies prove that unaddressed childhood trauma can negatively impact an individual’s ability to function in life as an adult. Children often develop distortions about their value and uniqueness. Processing this now may save you and your child a lot of heartache later. My compassionate approach to therapy is holistic, meaning that I take into consideration how different life events and people affect the whole person. I create a specific treatment plan for the client that fits their needs. Life challenges are a constant, but with the right strategies, a child can learn how to handle and navigate through them with confidence.

Talk therapy can be a powerful and transformative experience. When I get asked, “What should I look for in a therapist?” My response includes that you want to have a sense the psychotherapist you are sitting with is striving to understand you as a dynamic & complex person, and that you are being treated as such. To this end, as a psychologist-psychotherapist, my work is tailored to the needs of each unique individual. While symptoms of states such as anxiety and depression may be of commonality to many individuals with whom I work, the meanings of these symptoms vary tremendously from person to person.
