About

Welcome! My practice focuses on treating adolescent and adults experiencing anxiety, mild depression, relational challenges. Life has many ups, downs, twists, and turns leaving you wondering which path to take. Sometimes we only focus on the path once traveled. Sometimes we get too tangled in the path that is not yet within our reach. Through therapy we explore the issues and concerns you face, and work together at developing new skills, workable solutions for handling conflict and upsetting emotions. While building empowerment, and hope for increased life satisfaction, purpose and joy.
My goal is to help you focus on your present journey and where you would like your journey to lead. I look forward to understanding your story, while overcoming obstacles, identifying triggers, further developing coping skills, exploring what is important to you, and helping you live a fulfilled life.
My theoretical orientation is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). However, I utilize other interventions that fit my clients' specific needs. I am also a certified Prepare-Enrich Therapist and Gottman Level 1 & 2 Trained. I was also a guest expert on OPRAH and Dr. Phil.
