About

We all begin therapy with a problem or a sense that things are not going right in our lives. Each of us would like to find a way to live a more accepting, fulfilling, and inspired life. Today is the day that you have decided it is time to work through the deeper things you have been pushing to the back burner for too long. You want to feel like you can breathe again and have peace. You don’t have to struggle alone. Could you use an expert opinion on what you’re going through or a non-judgemental ear to listen? If you answered “yes,” then you are in the right place.
I will work collaboratively with you to help you access and understand your emotions, needs, and deepest desires. I have extensive experience working with people dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief, utilizing CBT and EMDR in sessions. I will carefully review your goals and develop a treatment plan based on your unique presentation.
I provide a supportive, non-judgmental and compassionate environment where you can feel safe in addressing your concerns and experiences. It is possible to heal the past, understand the present moment, and unlock your innate potential for the future. Reach out to me today for a free consultation to talk about how we can work together to help you feel better.
