Navigating life's challenges can feel overwhelming, and it's okay to seek support along the way! Whether you're struggling with managing stress, coping with difficult emotions, or facing obstacles in relationships, let me help you navigate the barriers that have prevented you from living the life you imagined. I collaborate with my clients because it is important to blend my therapeutic knowledge with your personal motivations. Working together to help you achieve your goals allows for the most growth and lasting success. Remember you are not your mental health. You have a name, a personality, a history, and a story to tell.
I have been a social worker for 11 years and enjoy working with adolescents, young adults and adults. I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, multiple trauma modalities, and exposure response prevention. My therapeutic passions including working with OCD and anxiety, depression, military populations, and life transitions
I believe in the transformative power of therapy and building a life worth living. You can explore your thoughts and feelings, gain clarity, and develop effective coping strategies in a safe environment. If you're ready to take the first step towards healing and transformation, I invite you to reach out to schedule a confidential consultation today!

I love assisting with OCD, specific phobias, emetophobia, body focused repetitive behaviors (skin picking, hair pulling, etc). I want people to see there is help and a life away from rituals/compulsions. With trauma, I am trained in TFCBT and TGCBT as well as being a certified clinical trauma professional. I have treated abuse and neglect, military/combat trauma, death, domestic violence, etc.
