About

I specialize in treating depression and anxiety as well as serious mental illnesses with teens through older adults. Facing life transitions such as adolescence, graduating high school and college, entering the professional world, becoming a new parent, considering a career change, or entering retirement can weigh heavily on one's mind and I'm here to help. In addition to an MSW, I hold an MDiv which equips me to provide a Christian counseling experience for those desiring to have their spirituality incorporated into treatment. I look at and hear the person in front of me, seeking to understand what is said and unsaid.
What are your goals? How will you know you achieved them? I consider my approach to be filled with empathy for your experiences, but balanced with humor and directness to create a collaborative team with you. I draw from different modalities of therapy to help you get unstuck and moving forward.
I strive to provide a nonjudgmental, safe, and welcoming place to work through the challenges that inhibit you from experiencing your fullest potential. We all deal with negative thoughts and beliefs that plague our minds, but we can also take control when we decide we are ready. If you're ready, I'm here to help. *IN PERSON ONLY AT THIS TIME*
