About

I provide compassionate therapy and use evidence based methods to suit your unique needs to create a meaningful life. I help people by listening carefully and creating solution oriented roadmaps. “Who am I?” “What do I need?” “What are my obstacles?” These are examples of questions you might have. I am here to guide you in developing thoughtful and actionable responses by cultivating awareness of yourself, your feelings, arriving at roots that cause distress, and leading lives of flourishing.
I am a licensed counselor specialized in depression, anxiety, and addiction treatment with experience treating a broad range of concerns. My approach to therapy honors each person's holistic (mind, body, and soul) needs, and I foster a nurturing therapeutic alliance to create a safe harbor for growth.
I am here to help you become the best version of yourself. Everyone responds differently to life's wounds depending on their genetics, environment, relationships, upbringing, health status and a plethora of other dynamics. I help people to understand themselves and to formulate patterns of behavior that build resilience, and balance acceptance with change.
