About

Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start..Nido Qubein. Life will always present challenges & sometimes can be complicated with feelings of depression or anxiety. I believe by exploring the relationship between an individual’s thoughts and behaviors in a warm and empathic environment and the identification of appropriate coping skills, your quality of life can improve. A client-centered approach highlighting individual strengths to achieve personal goals is implemented. Motivational interviewing and Solution-focused techniques are employed as we partner together.
With 24 years of experience, I have supported adults presenting with mental health needs and/or complex co-morbidities. I specialize in working with adults and elderly population struggling with Anxiety, Depression, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorders.
Take the next steps to provide additional support for yourself or family member in need. Call for a free consultation to explore services for you or a loved one.
