About

I believe that it takes immense courage to seek support and ask for help. As a clinician I strive to foster and utilize that courage to help the clients come up with their own answers to life’s difficulties as they arise.
My background includes working with those who suffer with Substance Use Disorder, as well as Gambling Disorder. I also have experience working with Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar, Panic Disorder, ADHD, interpersonal difficulties, and adjustment difficulties.
I strive to create a comfortable and safe environment where clients feel they can be vulnerable, open, and honest without judgment. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process driven by the client. It should be individualized and tailored to the needs of the client. Clients describe me as having a witty, warm and empathetic demeanor.
