I utilize a person-centered approach to meet clients where they are and put their goals first.
My passion is to help clients challenge negative/limiting beliefs holding them back from the life they want. Have you felt held back from fully enjoying your life due to anxiety, uncomfortable feelings, and dysfunctional patterns of behavior? Clients experiencing these challenges find our work together to be very productive. I enjoy working with adolescents, adults and families, including those who have a loved one experiencing an eating disorder or substance use addiction. I have worked with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addiction, self-esteem, relationship, familial and work issues.

I use CBT to help turn your negative thoughts/self-talk into a positive mindset while the Person-Centered approach allows you to feel more comfortable and open with your true self.
Do you feel anxious due to your work, family issues, low self-esteem, and relationship issues? I can especially help those with anxiety/panic attacks. I make it a priority to help clients with buried feelings who have trouble speaking on their emotions. Communicating emotionally is extremely important to promote well-rounded and mature adults. I will help you enhance your self-awareness around unhelpful thought and behavior patterns and build skills necessary to handle life more effectively and develop actionable steps to reach your goals.
