Partnering with you to improve the quality of your life: that is my goal as your therapist. I'm here to encourage, support, empower, and listen. During our first session we will determine your goals for therapy and what changes you want to make to improve your life. To best help you, I use an integrative technique, designed to meet you where are ready to start, and sessions are tailored to your needs and goals.

My practice is based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy where we examine how thoughts, feelings and behaviors all connect helping us to see core beliefs that may not be serving us. This leads to identifying and changing behavior patterns that are not working- ones that may ultimately hold you back from experiencing more fulfilling relationships and a more meaningful life. These powerful tools can be of great help in this important work.
