Announcement icon I am currently accepting new clients for Telehealth appointments.
Life doesn't have to be painful. Through therapy, I can help you find healing from unhealthy patterns and pain. As a therapist, I am warm, compassionate, and honest. I am easy to connect with and help my clients feel comfortable quickly. My specialty is in assisting my clients with uncovering the root of unhelpful patterns, addressing the symptoms of these patterns, and with creating meaningful changes in their lives. Through my knowledge, experience, and passion, I can assist you in finding greater confidence, healing, and insight.
Therapy can and should be a positive experience. It is my goal that clients leave every session with a greater understanding of themselves and their relationships. I have extensive experience working with adolescents and adults with mood/anxiety disorders, substance use issues, personality disorders, relationship issues, and self-esteem issues.
I believe every person is unique and every treatment episode should be unique as well. I tailor therapy to each individual client's needs. I work with people on both a long and short term basis, depending on their goals in therapy. Please call me for a free phone consultation!
