About

Therapy is an opportunity to face what is challenging you in a supportive environment by enabling you to live your life the way you want. If you're looking for extra support through a difficult time or you're just ready to move in a new direction, I look forward to working with you. I provide individual, group, couples, and family therapy for children, adolescents, and adults.My treatment approach is collaborative, working with clients to discover the most helpful ways to discuss and work through obstacles to achieve healthy lasting changes.
I provide an atmosphere of empathy and non-judgmental understanding to establish the foundation for a trusting working relationship. You will feel empowered to build on your strengths and develop new coping skills to manage areas where you are struggling in your life.
Throughout our time together you will learn techniques to help: *Reduce stress and worry *Handle painful thoughts and feelings more effectively *Break self-defeating habits *Overcome insecurity and self-doubt *Create a rich, meaningful life
