Are you struggling with Depression and/or Anxiety? Feeling unmotivated? Problems in relationships? Needing support? Imagine a life where you're not held back. Where you have the tools to conquer daily struggles, and where you feel a renewed sense of control and enjoyment of life. That's where therapy can come in and help you. We'll work as a team to collaborate on addressing your emotional and mental health struggles. I'll be supportive and challenging in order to help you to progress and feel better. My main specialties are Depression, Anxiety, past trauma, stress, and having anxious attachment style in relationships.
I use evidenced based approaches such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I use and teach techniques that have been shown to be helpful in dealing with mental health issues such as learning to reframe and challenge your thoughts, regulating your emotions, working on radical acceptance, and other helpful strategies.
For over 16 years I’ve worked in different settings such as addiction treatment centers, dual-diagnosis programs, nonprofit, and private practice. I have worked with different groups like teens (ages 14+), adults, families, the LGBTQ+ community, Veterans, Law Enforcement, and First Responders. If you're ready to start your journey, reach out to begin.
