We all make our own way through life's journey and encounter hardships, and while these circumstances are temporary their impact influences us for a lifetime. If anxiety, depression, trauma, adjustment/change or other struggles are interfering with your life, therapy may help you become more self-aware, to learn to love and accept yourself, enhance relationships, and improve your overall quality and functioning in life. I have a passion for helping people navigate life's struggles and assist them toward realizing their goals; I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to assist others on their journey of self-reflection.

I have been honored to work with Veterans and non-Veterans helping with a variety of mental health concerns. I use an eclectic therapeutic approach that draws from many modalities to best meet your needs. I would like to work with you to learn about your goals and discuss how I can help you achieve them. There are times when we may not have a specific idea of where to start or what our goals are and that is alright. We can figure it out together. If we are not sure where to begin, we may talk about some important questions that may help us find a place to start: What do you live for? What matters to you?

You’ve been feeling “off” for a while now. Your life isn’t necessarily falling apart but you’re not happy. You’ve thought about going to therapy many times but then you end up procrastinating. You tell yourself you should be able to figure this out on your own and that therapy is for people with problems worse than yours. But lately something has tipped the scales. Most of the time you handle your emotions pretty well but now it’s too much with everything you have going on. You’re stressed, anxious or depressed. Some days you’re not even sure how you feel.

Are you checking your work email long after you've clocked out or over the weekend because you're afraid of what'll happen if you don't? Is your endless to-do list keeping you up at night? And your jaw hurts from how much you clench it throughout the day (and you don't even realize it). If you're looking at this page, I imagine that you probably want to feel less stressed and anxious, but at the same time you can't get rid of this voice in your head that says you're not good enough, and you have to keep doing more and more. This voice has probably helped you do really well at work, but it's not helping you feel that great.
