I work with children, adolescents, and adults and specialize in working with depression, anxiety, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, navigating relationships, and life transitions. I enjoy working with clients who need emotional support and are motivated for change. My theoretical approach is Cognitive-behavioral and I work to develop skills based on dialectical behavior therapy and CBT. I specialize in adolescents experiencing anxiety and depression. I utilize both behavioral and interpersonal approaches to therapy, but a strength-based approach guides the treatment.

There are times in our lives when we feel sad, depressed, confused, anxious and despite our best efforts at giving ourselves rational advice, we still don't feel better. In therapy, we work towards building a different way of thinking about ourselves and our problems. Not only will we relieve the symptoms but also achieve personal growth, acceptance of ourselves and most importantly, a liberating feeling of being understood. Every individual is unique and will have different needs and desired outcomes for their therapeutic process. With that in mind, whatever each specific client is seeking will be respected and worked towards.

Memories from the past flash across your mind – bits and pieces of the worst thing that ever happened to you. You find yourself thinking about all the things you wish you could have done differently and playing out all of the "coulda, shoulda, wouldas". You're feeling constantly on edge, people tell you you're a control freak, and you just can't seem to ever let your guard down. It's exhausting and you're fed up with feeling this way. You're willing to put in the work to feel better - if you only just knew where to start or how to make yourself feel better. You need help, but just don't know how to start.

Beneficial therapy is founded upon a strong relationship between the therapist and the client. There is something healing about connecting with another person, about being seen, about feeling understood. With each of my clients, I work to create a warm relationship where they know they will be met with respect and empathy. I also recognize that for some people, especially people with non-dominant cultural identities, mental health care has not always felt welcoming. With that in mind, I work to provide a space where everyone can experience a sense of belonging and feel safe being their full selves. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming.

A working machine is comprised of many cogs and gears that must interlock seamlessly in order to function. Our minds are not all that different. One faulty belief can throw our whole center off balance. That is why counseling can be beneficial. Gaining a new perspective is the same as getting a realignment. Counseling can be a life-altering journey as it offers a judgement-free atmosphere to explore our deepest fears, sorrows, and triumphs. The sharing of these experiences can open our minds up to new ideas and perspectives that we may be struggle to uncover on our own.
