Are you having a difficult time adjusting to a new life change? Do you experience anxiety and/or depression? Do grief and trauma seem to take over your life at times? If you answered "yes" to any of these situations, I might be able to help you. Together, we can work to build a solid foundation from which you can begin to adjust to whatever life brings you. I incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and mindfulness techniques into my practice to help my clients ground themselves in the present moment and be able to take the techniques they develop in session into their daily life.
I specialize in depression, anxiety, substance abuse and addictions counseling, and grief counseling. My philosophy of counseling is based around the simple idea that every individual deserves to live a happy, healthy and whole life. A little help in counseling has the potential to go a long way to living happy, healthy, and whole.
There’s enough negativity in the world and I believe that most individuals who seek out professional counseling likely don’t want to pile on the negativity in a counseling session. My approach to counseling is focused on person-centered therapy, which aims to allow you to be the best version of yourself. A problem shared is problem cut in half.
