My areas of interests are identity development, low self-esteem, psychological assessment, LGBTQ+ issues, depression/anxiety concerns, men’s issues, family and relationship concerns, oppositional behaviors, stress management, and college transitions.
I have experience working with and providing therapy to children, adolescents, traditional/non-traditional college students and adults in wide variety of settings. I primarily work from an Interpersonal Process Approach (IPA) that focuses not only on symptom reduction but is focused on the therapeutic relationship and how it can be used as a vehicle to help promote change. The therapeutic relationship within this approach helps bolster the belief and confidence in, not only the possibility, but client’s actual ability to make changes in their lives. I also integrate and work from a Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I provide guidance and support to teens and young adults who are struggling with various life transitions such as processing family conflict, transition from high school to college, perfectionism, anxiety, student athletes who are struggling with time management, young adults and adults struggling with depression or anxiety, and adjusting to life after college. An important part of the therapy process is learning how to find balance, organize your thoughts and learn about what has shaped the story you've been telling yourself.

Have a cup of tea or coffee. Sit back, and maybe even wrap in a blanket. Take this time to go wherever you need to go emotionally, knowing this is a judgment free room. As your therapist, I will not be able to solve your problems for you. Actually, I would not want to even if I could. I do not presume that I have answers to your problems, or that my way is the best or only way. I fully believe that you have the answers you need within you, we just need to uncover them. I will walk with you for as long as you want and need.

Everyday our mind processes information at an extremely fast rate, with social media, mainstream media and our social circle, we are constantly being reminded of who we are not, who we should be or who we want to be. This kind of pressure, added with any previous trauma or unhealthy thoughts can cause anxiety, depression, anger or other various mental health challenges. Sometimes it feels easier to address these thoughts alone, the reality is, it is always healthier to process these thoughts with an unbiased individual so that the pressure of today’s world doesn’t feel so tight.

Even though transitions are a part of all of our lives, they sometimes stir up old pain or are just too overwhelming to navigate without some help. You deserve the time and support to work through it and counseling can provide that for you. I believe in a person centered, interpersonal, cognitive behavioral and strength based counseling approach. I have over 14 years of experience using these approaches working with individuals of all ages dealing with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, relationship issues, chronic illnesses and transitions at all stages of life.

I truly care about my clients and will provide a confidential, empathic, and non-judgmental environment. My ideal client might be in distress and simply in need of relief or someone who wants to investigate themselves and grow through the process. My ideal client might not be sure if therapy will help. I would try a variety of strategies to show you that it can. I have had challenges in life and I have received help from many people along the way. I believe that we should receive help when we need it and help others when we are able to do so. I look forward to collaborating in our work together!

The relationship between you and I is a key component of your treatment outcome. I believe that this therapeutic relationship is founded in a spirit of collaboration, an emotional bond and an agreement on goals and tasks. Two main characteristics of therapy are critical to the building of this therapeutic alliance: expertise and empathy. I am confident in my ability to help resolve any issues in a satisfying manner, prepared in both theory and practice, clear in my thoughts, ideas, and logical in the problem solving process. Of equal importance, I am accepting, understanding and genuinely interested in you and your needs.

Are you a young professional who feels stuck in life, held back by anxiety, or lack of motivation because you don’t know where you want to go? Are you an athlete and know you could perform better if you were just more calm and in control of your emotions? Or maybe you have a child who is struggling with emotional regulation, flexibility and anxiety. I work with each of these populations to help the young professional thrive, the athlete maintain mental and emotional stability while performing and the child who’s anxious to calm fear and hyper vigilance.
