About

Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Life is a journey where we all experience stressful situations, relationship challenges, life transitions, and unforeseen circumstances that may result in increased anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, and having difficulty with coping. These situations may cause you to feel stuck, not knowing which direction to turn. As a therapist with over 25 years of experience, I am here to guide you and help you develop the skills you need to create lasting change so you can live your best life and have the happiness you so deserve.
My philosophy is that each person is unique and every session needs to be individualized to determine which therapeutic techniques would be most effective in creating the desired outcome. Some evidence-based practices I use include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
My goal as a therapist is to help you reach your fullest potential while providing a non-judgmental environment that promotes positive change and healing. Let me help you create a pathway for success in reaching your goals. I encourage you to take the first step and contact me for a FREE consultation. I look forward to joining you on this journey!
