Now accepting new clients. When we face challenges in life, we go to what has worked in the past. We distract ourselves, distance ourselves, or self-medicate with food, relationships, substances and more. At some point, these methods do more harm than good. Let's work together to identify the ways you cope and find better options. I will create a comfortable and safe environment free from judgment that encourages self-discovery. I have experience helping people with trauma, relationships, self-esteem, body image, substance use, anxiety, depression, OCD, binge eating disorder, suicidal thoughts and more.
I work to understand your unique experience and together we will build a plan that works for you. You already have what it takes to heal yourself, and I will focus on building up your innate strengths. I believe in developing the collaborative relationship between us in order to provide a warm and genuine therapeutic experience.
I use a down-to-earth approach, genuine compassion, and humor to make therapy a rewarding process. Reaching out for help is a big step, and it takes courage. You have the power to make changes in your life, and I would be honored to walk beside you on this journey.
