About

Reaching out in times of difficulty can be hard, but I encourage you to have hope that things can get better. "Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future". (Robert Schuller) Being able to live a life full of happiness and contentment is so important, yet in today's world can be difficult. I believe that everyone has the potential to achieve emotional wellness and a sense of balance in life. I am dedicated to providing a therapeutic relationship that allows for a sense of safety, warm acceptance and empathy. I pride myself on being open-minded and nonjudgmental.
I believe that therapy needs to be tailored to the individual and their specific world. Therefore, I utilize a variety of strategies that include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, art, play, and interpersonal techniques along with traditional talk therapy.
I am here to guide you on your journey. In a collaborative way, work can be done together to understand feelings and resolve difficulties that may be standing between you and the most happy and satisfying life possible.
