I strive to create a safe space for my clients where they can be themselves and completely open about their needs and concerns. Sometimes my clients have a long history of anxiety, depression, or trauma and negative patterns have been deeply entrenched over time. If you have negative thought patterns or challenging behaviors such as angry outbursts or acts of self harm, I can help you slow things down so that peer or family related conflict will be reduced and your relationships will be improved. We will use a strengths based approach in order to increase positive thoughts, behaviors, communication, and self esteem.

Often times what we desire the most are also the things that trigger great fear in us. Sharing our vulnerable stories can be scary, but you are not alone. We all need someone to hold a space for us, to listen without judgement and have a heart to understand. This is the reason for my approach, a collaborative approach. This allows me to meet you directly where you are. We are in this together.
