Thank you for considering a new therapeutic relationship. These are unique times that have brought many different stressors to an already chaotic world. Please value your self-care at this time and feel free to reach out if you need psychological support or guidance. My clients typically include those who are seeking a long-term therapeutic relationship, as well as those who are hoping to address a specific issue in a limited time. I utilize an integrated, tailored approach. Always kind, supportive and non-judgmental, I will also provide direct feedback needed to facilitate change. Fun fact: I’m a true crime junkie and two bulldogs.
I am Licensed Professional Counselor and a Clinical Supervisor with 18 years of experience providing individual, couples, and family therapy. I have worked in a variety of settings, including a homeless shelter, community mental health, an university, and a forensic setting with court mandated clients. I am certified in trauma and grief.
I work with a wide-range of clients, including those who are highly accomplished or just setting out to achieve their goals (address relationship issues, achieve personal growth, improve family dynamics, manage psychiatric symptoms, etc.). My specialties include but are not limited to attachment issues, mood, anxiety, depression and trauma.

I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my practice. In your first session, we'll explore what brought you to therapy and then decide the most appropriate ways to help you make progress. With CBT, we'll look at how your thoughts affect your emotions and experience. During treatment, I'll help you learn how to push back against those thoughts to change your feelings for the better.
