If you need a warm, supportive environment where you can feel safe to explore, learn, and make changes, you've come to the right place! I work with people of all ages from diverse backgrounds in a compassionate manner focusing on improving communication, recovering from past trauma, and developing effective strategies for stress/coping. I am directive at times and will challenge you to take on new perspectives and try out new behaviors, but at a pace that is comfortable to you. I use cognitive-behavioral techniques, role-playing, goal-setting, exposure/response prevention, assertiveness training, play therapy, and others. I also offer the convenience of video or telehealth therapy services.
