About

My ideal clients are individuals looking to improve their ability to handle stress and develop healthy coping skills. In this time of uncertainty, many individuals are experiencing burnout and the coping skills that used to help are no longer available or effective. I understand that feeling heard is important and I also really enjoy helping people feel empowered to handle their current challenges. I combine the use of evidence based interventions (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Mindfulness) with a warm and accepting approach to help you get the results you need.
Because of current stressors, many people are seeking therapy for the first time. I am ready to help. I have special experience and training in working adolescents, emerging adults, and adults. If you are struggling with dealing with uncertainty, finding direction in your life, or coping with stress, I am ready to listen and help you move forward.
I enjoy getting to know new clients, understanding their struggles, and finding ways we can effect change. People often reach out to start therapy because they feel stuck, but an outside perspective can really help people find out how to reclaim their power and start feeling better. I am accepting new clients and I look forward to getting to know you.
