About

Currently accepting telehealth only clients! Do you currently feel stuck and overwhelmed and not sure how to move forward? Your in the right place..I can help! I truly believe you can have a life of abundance and happiness with tools and support along the way. I believe the therapeutic relationship along with a strengths based perspective is one of the best ways to overcome fear, anxiety and depression. I am as real as it comes and my approach is authentic and transparent. I use humor where needed and help my clients come to realize their full potential.
I specialize in building relationships and overcoming codependent tendencies as well as symptom reduction in anxiety and depression. I have a wealth of knowledge working in many different psychiatric settings including inpatient, residential and community based agencies. I utilize CBT DBT, solution focused and holistic approaches in order to meet your needs.
I am currently open to meeting new individuals that are struggling and seeking help. I believe taking the first step and reaching out can be the most difficult part however once we come to understand and have the awareness that we need help we are already on our way towards happiness and fulfillment.
