I am highly trained in the treatment of anxiety disorders, OCD , depressive disorders, body-image concerns, family distress, vulnerable self-esteem and life-cycle transitions.
Do you ever find yourself stuck in life patterns that no longer work but you’re not sure how to change? Do you ever find yourself experiencing difficult feelings that you don't fully understand or know how to address? In my work as a psychotherapist, I provide a safe environment in which clients can freely and honestly explore their thoughts and feelings and begin to move away the obstacles that stand in front of what they truly want. I skillfully help clients to develop a more compassionate self-awareness so that they may have greater flexibility in how they respond to the pressures and stressors of life.

I've had extensive training in EX/RP (Exposure Response Prevention) as well as ACT to treat a variety of anxiety disorders including OCD .
Research shows at least 1 in 5 people struggle with an anxiety disorder. Helping someone with anxiety or OCD has become a true passion of mine- or the "bread and butter" of my therapy skillset. I am a state licensed professional counselor drawn towards helping children and adults to be the best version of themselves. I primarily use a short term, problem solving approach also known as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), but often use a "neapolitan" combination approach in working with people to tailor to their each individual needs.

I have substantial experience working with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Our unique histories, family dynamics, inherited beliefs, and learned social roles compound to create rich personalities, but can also create subtle barriers to growth. I believe that the most effective way to heal old wounds and develop new strengths is in relationship to other people, and have faith in the potential for the therapeutic relationship to be a vehicle for deep insight and transformation. I work with adults and adolescents with histories of trauma, who are facing major life transitions, struggling with anxiety and depression, who are dealing with relationship discord or who want to explore their full potential.
