About

Therapy can feel broad and overwhelming. To simplify our approach, we'll seek acceptance and control of adversities that seem to dictate your life. Whatever stressors weigh on you, we'll troubleshoot what hasn't been working and process new tools to put in place. It is my responsibility to adapt to your preferences and ways of learning. I'll provide a space for you that can range from open discussion and exploration, to structured activities and weekly goals. Additionally, these steps are flexible and can be done in a matter of time that fits what you hope to achieve. All possible with individual, couples, and/or family therapy.
Life is complex, causing us to feel overwhelmed, uncertain, and disoriented. Let therapy be your compass. I'm trained in individual psychotherapy as well as couples & family dynamics. Thus, we'll think systemically about your presenting concerns as needed, helping to reduce individual burdens that come with depression, anxiety, and other presenting problems.
Having grown up in the helping field and being exposed to a variety of challenges, it is my pleasure to lend insight and support throughout your own adversities. I have helped a wide variety of clientele, including end of life care, couples on the verge of divorce, and addiction, to name a few. I look forward to the potential of working with you.
