Psychotherapy can be helpful addressing many areas including coping with a recent loss, chronic stress from work in a demanding industry, or wanting to explore the relationship patterns in your life and how they have lead you to where you are now. Sometimes there may be deeper concerns present including past traumas manifesting as depression and anxiety. It can seem difficult to let go of unhealthy patterns such as hurtful relationships, addictions, and other self-destructive habits. I work collaboratively with clients to target underlying issues as well as the external behaviors that may be keeping oneself feel stuck.

I work with a wide variety of clinical concerns including depression, anxiety, and major life transitions. One of my specializations is treating clients seeking help with substance abuse. I also work collaboratively with treatment facilities, helping to coordinate care.

Topics often explored in therapy include relationship issues, grief and loss, identity changes, coping with shame, past traumas, parenting, dual-diagnosed mental health concerns, adult children of alcoholics, and codependency.
