Do you find it difficult to manage intense emotions? Do you feel out of control and nothing you have tried has helped...several treatments, self-harm, even substances? Whatever actions/behaviors you have tried you still feel the pain? Well I am here to help. I will listen to your problems, help you to identify things that are not currently effective, and "together" find solutions to make some changes in your life.
My specialties include working with children to adults with a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem and difficulties adjusting to life transitions. I also treat clients with abuse history, traumas, self-injurious behaviors, eating disorders, and substance abuse histories.
My approach to therapy is client driven. I have been told, I am easy to talk to, non-judgemental, caring, insightful, & when appropriate a sense of humor.
