According to my mother, my first word was "why." Why is the sky blue? Why can't I have a cookie for breakfast? Why are people hurting? This curiosity is integral to my work as a therapist, as I strive to understand my client's worldview and the problems they are facing. Whether you are reliving past trauma, plagued by worrisome thoughts, concerned about your relationship or substance use, or feeling generally dissatisfied in life, I will provide an empathic ear, support, and guidance to help you meet these challenges and make the life changes you desire.
Throughout my career, I have worked with clients of diverse backgrounds and a spectrum of mental health concerns. I have expertise treating PTSD/trauma, anxiety, mood, anger, and substance use issues. I am well-versed in a variety of treatment approaches that are supported by existing research, which can be tailored to client's needs, preferences, and goals.
As a therapist, I empower my clients to make informed decisions about the care they receive and adopt a flexible approach to meet their needs. I am committed to providing a safe space for my clients to discuss challenging life experiences, explore opportunities for growth, and acquire skills to weather this thing called life. Together, we learn and evolve.
