About

Does life seem a bit overwhelming? Does your mind keep racing? Do you feel down? Do you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders? If you or your loved one have answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone, we can help! It is normal to have obstacles occur as we travel through life, but when it starts to interfere with our daily living we may experience frustration, sadness, confusion, and uneasiness. Getting help with these issues may lead to a more fulfilling life for you. Together, you and I will work together to meet your individual goals.
Call today and get an appointment to help you or a loved one feel better. If you are hesitant of counseling, we will offer you a 20-minute phone interview at no cost to you.
My practice was founded to provide our clients with therapies are effective and efficient, which can help reduce the time spent in therapy such as EMDR and DBT. We specialize in trauma, grief, troubled teens, anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, wellness, and addiction for all ages.
