Depression and anxiety are often a result of a misperception of self-worth. This impacts our lives in many ways and may lead to a fixed mindset where we feel stuck and unable to do anything about it. But, people can change and do. Helpful small changes can make a big difference. Generally, my role is to help people see themselves more accurately and to discover what they can do to feel better. When the struggles of life hit, all of us could benefit from therapy. The difference is, working things out in a safe, nonjudgmental environment is MUCH faster than trying to do it on your own.

I work with people struggling with a wide range of issues, especially depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substance abuse issues and more. We also have groups to augment individual work. I have worked in a residential treatment setting for youth, public mental health agencies, substance abuse treatment programs and private practice.

Clients are empowered and prepared with tools and information which are used to overcome problems. They are not harshly confronted, shamed or belittled, but encouraged and supported to help them find true satisfaction in their lives. Problematic behaviors and thinking patterns are addressed in a positive and safe environment.
