I believe everyone is capable of building a life they love. Finding freedom often requires us to slow down and take a look at our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions and learn how to interact with them differently so we can create a better and more purposeful life. More often than not, we just haven't learned the skills needed. I utilize evidence-based treatments in combination with warmth, compassion, and humor to help take a look at the patterns that are keeping you stuck and help develop tools to respond differently so you can build a life you don't want to escape from.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS - I firmly believe in individualized, custom care for each of my clients. Just as “one size fits all” clothing never really fits anybody there is no “no size fits all” therapy in my practice. If you are going to put your time and trust in me then the least I can do is provide customized, evidence-based care. I honor the belief that each client is an expert on him, her, or themselves. My clients are equal partners in their care. In addition to this, clients also seem to enjoy my laid-back and caring approach.
