What we endure in our lives can make the future cloudy and seeking help difficult. Acknowledging that you desire change is often the first step towards clarity. Many then find that they need further guidance, which is what has likely brought you here. I believe it is important for my clients to recognize and then use their strengths, past successes, supportive relationships (including the therapeutic one), and own hopes to obtain whatever goal they set forth. Moving forward I hope to build a strong, supportive, open therapeutic relationship which we can use toward a self-fulfilling and clear future.

I help adults and adolescents gain control over their anxiety and improve their quality of life. Are you feeling anxious or nervous? Do you find yourself feeling stuck, dissatisfied, or unhappy because you can't stop over-thinking or worrying? Would your relationships, career, or academics greatly improve if you could manage your anxiety? Does your anxiety ever cause you to feel like the walls are closing in, like your heart is beating out of your chest, or like you can’t catch your breath? If so, you’re not alone. Anxiety can be overwhelming but it doesn’t have to limit your life.
