It’s not unusual to feel depressed or anxious when life’s challenges seem too difficult to manage. If this is getting in the way of your relationships, your work, or even just your day-to-day life, a therapist can help you get back on track. Together, we’ll figure out what’s interfering with your well-being and how to address it.
Clients tell me I have helped them understand themselves better, discover their strengths, and build new coping skills. I work with individuals, couples, and families, from adolescents to adults. My clients deal with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, substance misuse, sleep difficulties, relationship problems, anger management, and more.
I have a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and my post-graduate training has covered trauma, grief and loss, veterans’ issues, mindfulness, and gender issues, to name a few. I tailor my approach to each individual and draw upon various types of therapy including CBT, Solution-Focused, DBT, and Stages of Change.
