I sincerely believe that people can change. Sometimes we just need help navigating that process. If you are experiencing distress, despair, or maybe just feel lost, I will help you find a solution. My approach involves helping people get unstuck from the destructive traps that we find ourselves in. I can help you tap into your internal strength, tenacity, and motivation. This will empower you to not only achieve your goals, but sustain them long-term. I do this through effective therapy techniques backed by scientific research, coupled with compassion, support, and encouragement. In our sessions, we can heal your suffering together.

I specialize in addictions, depression, anxiety (including OCD and Panic Attacks), and procrastination. I am very interactive, present-focused, and action-oriented. For the past 7 years I have been practicing Zen meditation, allowing me to offer additional time-tested tools to help you attain mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual harmony in your life.

I have undergone my own tribulations in life, and in more ways than one, can honestly say that I've been there. I know first-hand the hard work that is required to make profound changes. Paired with my professional training, my personal history gives me a special edge. The journey to peace and contentment may not be easy, but I will help you get there.
