I work with many clients experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, and/or cultural concerns. We spend time processing your situation and feelings and finding solutions that work for you. I recognize each client is an individual and treat them as such. Let's work together to help you walk in your truth. I've completed all 3 levels of Gottman Method Couples Therapy training, Treating Affairs & Trauma, Couples and Addiction Recovery, CBT for Insomnia, and am enrolled in Sex Therapy Certification through SHA. Future counselors: If you are looking for a licensure supervisor, I would love to chat about your needs and my unique style.
If you're looking for a counselor that sees you for the person you are as well as your potential, we might be a good fit. Many clients come with anxiety, relationship problems, and limited coping skills...and a string of therapists that couldn't meet their needs. I offer a personal and holistic approach to therapy that clients find helpful and supportive.
If you have made it this far, keep going. I know reaching out for support can be very challenging and with a quick visit to my website, you can be in the office this week. We are a paperless practice so please complete your intake packet and schedule your first session online. Feel free to call or text me to chat. I look forward to supporting you!
