About

These days, many of my clients have been pushed over the edge by the pandemic, with things that have been managed for years- stress, anxiety/depression, trauma, use of alcohol or other substances yourself, or by family members- suddenly becoming a problem. I meet clients where they are, so if one thing has gotten out of balance, we can focus on that issue. If it is time to go deeper, we can do that as well. Therapy is about changes that will make a difference in your day-to-day life, giving you peace of mind, and the joys you desire. If this resonates with you, please contact me, and we will work together to achieve these outcomes.
I have a strengths-based focus, and work with clients toward solutions they want in their lives. I use a variety of approaches including client-centered treatment, cognitive behavioral and mindfulness practices, and many others. I am obtaining certification in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) as an adjunctive service to offer in my practice.
I welcome you to contact me if you think I could be of help to you after reading my profile. I am happy to email, schedule a 15 minute, no cost video consultation, or start with a full 60 mins. virtual appointment at my hourly rate. Whether or not you choose to work with me, I wish you the very best finding a therapist to help you live your best life.
