Many people experience anxiety or sadness at some point in their life. Sometimes these feelings are related to a big change, a new stressor, or a longstanding challenge that has left you feeling overwhelmed and stuck. Regardless of what's going on in your life, my goal is to help you better confront, cope with, and recover from difficulties, so that you can live a more fulfilling life. I understand that the idea of therapy can seem intimidating. I see your decision to engage in treatment as a true testament to your strength.
I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families ranging in age from 2-years-old to 90-years-old who present with a wide range of challenges. I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques, Dialectical Behavioral skills, and Solution-Focused approaches within a broader Psychodynamic and Family Systems framework.
Regardless of the particular framework I am using, I always create a trusting and safe relationship with each of my clients. I have been told that I am compassionate, reliable, trustworthy, and humorous, which has helped me successfully treat individuals across the lifespan.
