Depression can seem scary and lonely. Anxiety may prevent you from having new experiences. Your past trauma may be impacting your ability to trust others. It may be hard for you to convey your emotions or thoughts. My goal is to help individuals not fear past experiences and current emotional states but rather learn from them. Struggling with mental health can be isolating and I would like to provide you with a nonjudgmental, safe-space to help you overcome your struggles while learning tools to help you grow and heal.

I am certified as a trauma specialist and practice Trauma-Focused CBT. I am also trained in CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy. My ultimate goal is to help provide tools to clients so they can manage their daily stressors and symptoms utilizing their support systems and healthy coping skills.

Utilizing a warm, non-judgmental, and safe space, clients are able to share their innermost struggles while being supported. I like to empower clients by helping them process their emotions, identify their strengths, and learn from their experiences. Let us not fear our emotions or thoughts but rather understand and learn from them.
