About

NO AVAILABILITY AT THIS TIME. Life can present us with twists and turns that lead us to feel sad, afraid, frustrated, or alone. Sometimes we can cope with this on our own, other times friends and/or family support us. Sometimes that just isn't enough; and we need an objective, nonjudgemental person who has training in counseling to help. I have many years of experience in individual and group therapy. My approach is active, genuine, and strengths-based. Teletherapy available.
I have worked with adolescents who were struggling with emotional and behavioral problems, young adults transitioning into independent living, and adults who need help managing the symptoms of anxiety, depression, OCD, hoarding disorder, and trauma.
My approach is eclectic based on the needs and wants of you. I am trained in EMDR, CBT, DBT and MI; and I incorporate mindfulness into my practice. Feel free to contact me for a consultation to see if my style and approach works for you.
