Hi! ( Accepting New Clients IN Office) My hope as a therapist is to provide a safe, warm accepting environment where you will feel comfortable enough to share your thoughts and feelings. I feel the most important part of therapy is the trust formed between therapist and client that allows client to feel comfortable addressing their issues. I believe therapy is a collaborative process where we work together to help you to increase your ability to use your inner strengths to improve the quality of your life.
My background is in special education. I have been working with children, adolescents, and families as a school psychologist since 2004, and in private practice since 2014. I specialize in working with children and adolescents (10-16), and young adults (18-25) and treat adjustment disorders that are associated with low academic achievement and school stress (i.e., social anxiety, depression/low self-esteem, ADHD, executive dysfunction, learning disabilities, etc.). I have available hours between 3:00 pm & 6:00 pm on Tues., Weds., and Thurs. Call me for a personal consultation!
I offer compassionate and practical psychotherapy for mental health and substance use challenges, with a focus on teens and young adults. I believe all people are capable of forging a healthy path in life, one which includes self-awareness and acceptance, strong connections with others, and progress towards their own growth and positive goals. As your therapist, I would offer you both support and strategies for developing resilience as you move through this stage of your life's journey.
Are you feeling stuck, isolated, or just overwhelmed by life? You are here, so you have already taken the first important step. I welcome the opportunity to help you make the right adjustments to improve your quality of life. With a non-judgmental approach, I will listen and guide you toward accessing your internal strengths, to help weather your life's storm. Let's work together to create a path that will lead you to greater self-awareness and a better you.
Therapy is much more than talking out your thoughts. I believe when engaged in therapy individuals feel supported, validated, empowered and encouraged to overcome or get through anything. Therapy is effective in dealing with a wide array of life’s most stressful issues including past trauma, anxiety, job or relationship issues, life transition, loss or just not feeling or functioning your best. I look forward to helping people build skills, think critically about their habits and work towards a better quality of life.
To those who stopped to read my profile, thank you for taking the time to consider if I am a good match for your needs. My first therapeutic action is to be sure you feel safe and comfortable in therapy. I want you to feel empowered as a consumer; if for any reason we are not a good match, I will work with you to find a therapist who can help. While my primary focus is compassionate care for those who have experienced trauma, grief, and loss, I also work with individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, anger, and cultural identity.
Do you feel stuck? Feeling down about life transitions? During times in our life, we all have stress, depression and anxiety. My focus in therapy, is building a therapeutic alliance based on trust. I am caring and compassionate, with a basic belief in the ability of people to grow. I help people improve their life skills and get through difficult times with support.
Are you feeling exhausted by the effort it takes to keep "pushing down" your worries and sadness? Especially if you have a history of trauma, it can feel like a losing battle keeping all of this at bay, but it doesn't have to. If you are ready for some relief, I can help. Acknowledging pain doesn't erase strength, and tending to it doesn't require "falling apart" in the process. I can help you put your past where it belongs: behind you. I start by strengthening the resiliency and coping strategies you already have, and adding more.

I am passionate about destigmatizing mental health treatment because I believe true wellness can only be achieved when we take care of our bodies and our minds. Life can be hard and there should never be shame involved in accessing the care needed to find peace, balance, and joy. As a therapist I provide a safe, non-judgmental, collaborative space to facilitate healing and strengthen your ability to cope with and live a more fulfilling life.
Are you finding it hard to navigate every day life? Life can be confusing and chaotic. Therapy can help identify your strengths, create new coping skills, and gain self-awareness and clarity. I strive to be an empathetic listener and work to create a safe and supportive space for you to explore your feelings and thoughts. I am accepting new clients and have a variety of times available.
Managing everything in our lives can be challenging and difficult. Developing a trusting, supportive relationship to face these challenges can result in increased feelings of empowerment and restore a positive balance in your life. I work with adults of all ages who are experiencing anxiety, increased stress and depression. I specialize in areas of loss, PTSD, relationship issues and grief. My approach is utilizing a strength-based model and engaging in a collaborative relationship with my clients.
