About

Maybe you're stuck or confused, or maybe feeling a little lost in this chaotic tornado called life. No one gave us a handbook on how to live or exist, we were just brought into this world to figure it out and sometimes told to not fail along the way. We have all developed distorted ways of how things are "supposed" to be, and how we are supposed to be but no map on how to get there. I understand and I want to help. Together we can navigate the storm and look beyond the "shoulds" and create the "I want tos."
I provide individual, couples, and family therapy. My primary therapeutic modality is CBT, which essentially states that events cause thoughts, which lead to emotions and behaviors. However, I understand this modality may not be for everyone, I tailor my interventions to the needs of my clients.
After overcoming struggles of my own, I decided I wanted to teach and help others with all of the knowledge I have gained. I work with a variety of clients from all backgrounds and ages as well as diagnoses. What I have recognized in doing so is that all we truly need is someone to slow things down and listen and that is what I can provide.
