Are you feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed? Are you struggling feelings of sadness all the time? You may be struggling with a major life stressor or perhaps you are feeling you are not where you want to be in your life or how you got there. I am passionate about working with clients to help them heal from the past, cope with the present and repair and grow healthy relationships. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), I specialize in perinatal mental health, anxiety and depression, OCD, alcohol and substance abuse disorders, ADHD, life transitions, parenting and attachment, and relationship issues.
I believe that using a collaborative, strength-based approach with clients in a safe, nurturing environment allows for optimal healing and growth. My therapeutic approach is a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, attachment-focused, psychodynamic, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Mindfulness Therapy.
I understand no two individuals are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address those issues with long-lasting strategies, helping you cultivate a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
