About

Making the decision to seek help can be a monumental task and selecting the right therapist can be challenging. I can provide you with a therapeutic relationship that will feel safe and collaborative so that it can serve as the basis for healing. My goal is to work with you in assessing your strengths, exploring challenges, working to overcome barriers, and returning you to a peaceful and productive state. I will work with you to create a treatment plan that suits your personality and needs. Sometimes, all you need are the right words at the right time to change how you see the world…including yourself.
I have experience working with adolescents, young adults, and adults, in both inpatient and outpatient settings. My training includes but is not limited to therapeutic modalities of CBT, DBT, EMDR, Mindfulness, Psychodynamic, and Gestalt. I'm the author of three books: Louder Than Bombs, Mighty Words From Mighty Women, and Habits of Successful People.
I understand firsthand how loss, mental health, and addiction can affect every aspect of a person’s life, including their narrative as I was forced to reevaluate my own narrative when I lost a child to suicide. My focus is on empowering people like you so they can change their narratives and live the life they desire. Let’s get started today!
