Where is the hope and excitement? What has got you stuck or tired and ready to give up? Have you lost trust in a partner or is the fighting and frustration in your family overwhelming you. A family can be the place where you are safe and are understood. The home can be a warm place full of love or a cold and bitter place you run from. Sadly, when we are hurting it is our families that feel the weight of that burden.

Hi there and congratulations on taking the sometimes daunting step towards finding a therapist. I don't know you, but I know that takes courage. My style as a therapist can be described as collaborative, curious, responsive, warm, and above all else, human. Although we are all experiencing this roller coaster-thing called life, I know that no two stories or individuals are the same. I am genuinely curious about my clients and what makes them who they are, which leads way to individualized care and true understanding.

Stress comes in many forms in our daily lives. When we get bogged down with memories from our past, or worries about our future, we become unable to fully participate in the present. My goal is to empower you to live as your most authentic self by creating a collaborative therapeutic atmosphere where you are the expert on your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I utilize a cognitive-behavioral, strength-based, and solution-focused approach to help you explore and identify what's working, what you would like to change, and potential strategies to achieve your goals.
