Announcement icon I am offering tele-therapy through video or phone to all who want to be seen during this time. I am a provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
Seeking help can be difficult and finding the right therapist is key. Each individual is unique and deserves individualized treatment. My primary goal is to offer a safe and caring environment in which you will be treated with dignity and respect. Therapy sessions are a collaborative process and they are aimed at empowering you to better understand yourself and to develop the coping skills necessary to live a more fulfilling life.
I have experience working with adults with anxiety, depression, PTSD/trauma, and multiple other issues. Many of my clients also come to therapy to better understand themselves and to find meaning and purpose in their lives. My approach is eclectic; utilizing humanistic, strengths-based, trauma-informed, EMDR, and cognitive behavioral therapies.
I believe in meeting each client where they are and helping them to achieve their personal and therapeutic goals. I offer flexible hours and a free phone consultation. Start your journey of self-exploration and healing today!
