I serve those struggling with any type of trauma/PTSD, substance abuse, depression, or anxiety who are tired of feeling miserable and want life to be a little different. I have a passion for connecting with clients who don’t want therapy or have had a bad experience in the past; I want every person to feel like therapy is worth it for them personally. I LOVE helping people discover their strengths and using those strengths to heal. But most of all my ideal client is someone who has a good sense of humor and an open mind. I also train service dogs and do animal assisted therapy, so people without dog allergies are a must!

I believe in a relaxed non-judgemental environment where self-criticism and blame are left at the door. I use evidenced-based interventions that work as efficiently as possible. I do NOT believe in therapy as a lifestyle; we get in there, do the work, and end when you are in a better place. If you need to come back, for any reason, my door is always open.

You can absolutely live without symptoms! The most important thing is feeling like you have a connection, can say anything without being judged, and feel heard. Without trust the most researched interventions will be less effective. For that reason I offer a free phone consultation. Please feel free to reach out to me and see if I am a good match for you.
