I believe that through self-acceptance change is possible. I work with individuals to discover resilience and perseverance by working through barriers and building strength in their self-awareness along the way. I work with adults 18 and older struggling to manage life transitions, anxiety, depression, navigate difficult relationships and/or family dynamics, improve self-worth, and with those who may be struggling to cope with experiences related to trauma. I incorporate mindfulness with REBT, CBT, Behavioral, ACT, and Solution-focused techniques.
In addition to individual therapy, I specialize in parent guidance and support. With 13yrs experience as a parent coach and 10 years' experience as a childcare provider, I work with parents of varying dynamics to better understand their child(ren)’s development and learn how to more effectively engage when addressing challenges related to behavior.
If you find yourself struggling in any way, please reach out for a free initial consultation. Nothing changes if nothing changes. Let’s work together to take the first step.
