I enjoy working with a range of concerns: identity development, depression, anxiety, relationships, substance use , & self-harm.
Seeking an intentional space for healing and discovery is a meaningful choice. Through curiosity, warmth, and honesty, I work collaboratively to support clients in connecting their history, relationships, environment, to their current challenges and future goals. I believe that all of our stories are contextual, therefore I work towards identifying oppression-based barriers and explore the environmental impact through an anti-oppressive and liberation lens. My focus is to create a space where you can be empowered, express your pain, learn new ways of coping, and continue to grow into your most authentic self.

I have experience working with depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues, parenting struggles, substance use disorders, self-harm, life transitions, ADHD and ODD, and self-esteem-related issues.
I enjoy working with clients who are transitioning to the next stage of their lives or want to set new life/career goals. The next step could be transitioning from high school to college, beginning a new relationship, or a new career/job. I like to support the client with exploring these new goals, help build confidence/self-esteem to take those first steps towards them, and re-evaluate goals if necessary. I find that these transitions come with a lot of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues that can hold clients back, which I like to explore, build solutions, and help them realize that goals are achievable.

I imagine my ideal client is someone who is motivated to be in treatment for mental health and substance use . This client is coming to treatment to address their anxiety and depression symptoms and they also struggle with alcohol use. Ideally, this person's goal is to improve their quality of life by learning healthy coping skills, communication skills, and boundary setting skills and they want to remain sober from substances. I imagine this client is entering treatment because they feel they are ready to do the work and could benefit from talk therapy.

My specialities include (but are not limited to): trauma & complex trauma, addiction/ substance use , anxiety, depression, identity-related concerns, relational volatility, depression, life transitions, mood instability, and spiritual/existential concerns.
Those I collaborate with have unique lived experiences connected to a variety of complex histories, outcomes, dynamics, and adaptive responses. They’re in search of a therapist who is resonant, attuned, and with the times; someone who can meet them in their intricacies and provide a safe space devoted to the exploration of their inner and outer worlds. My goal is to offer just that: to co-create therapeutic experiences that fully honor the entirety of a persons being - not just their symptoms, identified labels, and categorizations.

As an individual therapist I have experience treating anxiety, depression, shame and self-doubt, substance use , and family challenges.
Therapy works when you feel genuinely seen and heard, and when we can build the trust to clearly imagine and move towards the ways you want yourself and your life to change. My approach to this work is warm, caring, and candid—and, above all, responsive to what you need. We might also laugh sometimes.

Perhaps you struggle with depression or anxiety and are overwhelmed trying to manage the stress of daily living. You may find yourself resorting to substance use or other compulsive behaviors as a form of coping with daily stressors. You are committed to change and have tried to change, but lack the deeper awareness of what is driving the behaviors. It can be disheartening to acknowledge the unwanted impact on your life and on your valued relationships.

Struggling to cope with intense worry, sadness, or anger can feel overwhelming and lonely. Reducing alcohol or other substance use can be similarly isolating and intertwined with negative emotions. Recognizing that there is a problem can be the largest hurdle, but finding a way to make those changes does not have to be. You may have already made attempts to change on your own and make things better, but it hasn’t quite worked out. Often, what to do and when to do it is not clear.

The primary focus of my practice for 40 years has been helping people achieve recovery from substance use disorders. I use a collaborative, motivational approach, rather than confrontation, and work with people on setting and achieving realistic and healthy goals for their problems. I believe, (as did Bill Wilson, the founder of AA) that there are many paths to recovery; each person must work on a program that reflects their unique needs and assets. I encourage people to explore their resources, their obstacles and their values in setting goals and in working a positive program. Secondarily, I am trained in couples/marital therapy.
