If you struggle with substance use or mood disorders you've come to the right place. Sometimes our story includes twists and turns that keeps us from moving forward in our lives. That might be through turbulent relationships, use of substances or a loved one struggling with substance use , bouts of depression or anxiety that impacts their quality of life, a loved one passing away or our own thinking patterns that influence our behaviors. My role in working with my clients is assisting them with moving forward, finding new solutions or courses of action, and helping them build their toolbox so that they can cope more productively.

My experience as a clinician has been working with adults with mood disorders, substance use , chronic relapse, and trauma.
As an adult going through this thing called life, we often need a safe space to process the feelings and emotions that come from our life experiences. As a clinician, it is my hope to create that safe space for you to be able to identify and process how your past and present experiences impact your day to day life. My intent is to help you see your potential, challenge your unhelpful thoughts, create healthy boundaries and build the confidence you need to help you reach your full potential.

I’ve worked with clients to manage substance use , severe mental illness, and school stressors, among various difficulties and diagnoses.
Having ADHD can sometimes feel like a daily battle with yourself to accomplish tasks, maintain relationships, and attend to your own needs, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Learning how to work with your ADHD rather than against it can be a transformative experience, and it would be my honor to accompany you on this delicate balancing act of a journey. Together in therapy, we can work to tackle the challenges of ADHD while also bolstering your strengths and coming into and honoring your most authentic self. I work to create a therapeutic space that is compassionate, constructive, and creative, and I can’t wait to welcome you in.

Though I am not currently accepting new clients, other therapists at my center are have openings. Trauma, addiction, and loss can disrupt one's life - and often require professional help. Together, we can process the fueling factors of addiction, emotional pain, or relationship issues. While many therapists claim to be 'trauma-informed', my practice, the Phoenix Center for Experiential Trauma Therapy, revolves entirely around trauma work. I've been recognized as a Fellow of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress - the highest status in the academy.

What type of Media mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
