"Good health isn't merely the absence of disease but rather a state of living fully in our vitality." My approach to therapy is person-centered, focused on you and what you'd like to see change in your life. This means I will focus on understanding and listening deeply to you and then I will introduce proven interventions to help you attain your goals. It is my intention to create a safe, non-judgmental, open and honest environment that creates space for your growth and healing.

I utilize a combination of evidence-based interventions and time-tested skills, like mindfulness and meditation, so you can engage with life challenges and stress and feel equipped to engage in a meaningful life. I have nearly 20 years experience treating people with anxiety, PTSD, work related stress, adjustment problems and life transitions.

I know how challenging it is to reach out and ask for help. Being here, reading this, at this moment is the first step, you've got this! You can email me here or schedule a consultation call from my website. I look forward to speaking with you!
