Everyone has a necessary journey throughout life and sometimes additional support is needed along the way. My interactions with clients are grounded in compassion, respect, empathy, and an understanding of cultural impacts. I consider the role of a therapist as helping to educate and empower clients so that they develop the insight and skills necessary to overcome their own personal and situational challenges.

1 Journey currently specializes in an array of services for children, teens, families, adults, and couples to address body image, trauma, depression, anxiety, adjustment issues through the use of Trauma-Focused CBT, Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. We also offer evening and weekend availability.

I collaborate with my clients to reduce stress and improve their well-being. In session we'll discuss practical ways to solve current problems, and how past experiences shape your views and responses. I believe that insight into your patterns can help you make decisions that result in long-lasting change and satisfaction.

Journey of Purpose is a trauma-focused group for children/adolescents/parents who have experienced trauma.
